A swim coach acquitted of sexually assaulting nine girls was steadfastly supported during his four-year ordeal by his identical twin brother.
The strong bond shared between 24-year-old Kyle Daniels and his brother Liam is revealed in a series of photos posted online as Kyle defended himself in two lawsuits.
Liam’s Instagram features photos of the couple smiling together, pouting cheekily for the camera while wearing neon pink leggings and t-shirts, working out, and even taking photos with their parents.
Despite never having spoken publicly about his brother’s ordeal, Liam is understood to have supported him from the day he was accused.
Kyle was arrested in March 2019 for his alleged conduct at Mosman Swim Center on Sydney’s lower north shore.
He endured a seven-week trial in 2020 and another that lasted ten weeks in 2022 before he was New south Wales Director of the Prosecutor’s Office decided not to proceed with a third party.

The twins were born in Johannesburg in 1998 and went to school in South Africa and Singapore before moving to Sydney in 2014.
Kyle was appointed as a school prefect at the prestigious Knox Grammar school in 2016 and played water polo in the first grade before enrolling in a sports science degree at the University of Sydney in 2017.

Kyle’s arrest prompted more girls to report that he touched them on or near their genitals between February 2018 and February 2019.
He was tried for 21 crimes related to the alleged sexual contact of nine girls, between the ages of five and ten.
Kyle has pleaded not guilty to all charges and has always denied any wrongdoing. Hee had the full support of her parents, and the couple often sat through most court days.
In December of last year, the decision to drop the charges entirely came after a jury found Daniels not guilty on 10 charges against him, including felony charges of sexual intercourse with a child under 10.
Crown prosecutor Tony McCarthy said at the time: “The Director of Public Prosecutions has ordered that there be no further proceedings in relation to any of the outstanding charges.”
Kyle’s father Daniel posted this photo of himself and his twin sons Kyle and Liam on Manly beach in Sydney saying he had “a very happy heart”. Pure happiness and love. My children!’
Despite being cleared of committing a criminal offence, the police continued to pursue Mr. Daniels, who continued to seek restraining orders against the 24-year-old on behalf of five of the girls.
Those apprehended violence warrant applications were eventually withdrawn and dismissed before a magistrate at Downing Center Local Court on May 31.
Daniels has kept a low profile since he was acquitted of the crimes and has not spoken publicly about his four-year ordeal.
His father James celebrated his son’s exoneration online.
In a post alongside a photo of himself beaming in a beach towel with his arms around the shoulders of Kyle and his twin brother Liam, James wrote on Instagram: “A very happy heart.”
‘To all who know, this is the best Christmas this father could have wished for. Pure happiness and love. My children!’
The photo, which shows the three men on the Manly beach, appears to have been uploaded to James Daniels’ Instagram page in January.
