Hayne returned from a trip to Tel Aviv this morning.

He was reportedly led out a side exit of the international terminal of Sydney airport by Federal Police and avoided waiting media crews.

Hayne's accuser says he took her back to his San Jose home after a San Francisco 49ers game in late 2015 and raped her when she was drunk, however earlier this month his lawyers said he "unequivocally and vehemently" denied the allegations.
