A sex tape showing a key ally of Hungary's prime minister in an orgy with prostitutes and other men on board a luxury yacht has been leaked.

Married dad-of-two Zsolt Borkai, the mayor of the city of Gyor, was plunged into a sex scandal when the X-rated footage emerged just days before Sunday's elections.

Video posted on a blog and porn websites shows the 54-year-old having sex with a young woman in an orgy allegedly fuelled by cocaine.

Borkai, a national hero after winning an Olympic gold medal in gymnastics has refused to resign after the video emerged along with claims of corruption, abuse of power and drug use.

The right-wing populist politician is an ally of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and a former president of the Hungarian Olympic Committee.

A sex tape showing Tamas Wittinghoff, the mayor of the town of Budaors, has also leaked during the campaign.

The sex tape emerged just days before Sunday's local elections.

The orgy involving Borkai reportedly happened off the coast of Dubrovnik, Croatia, during a yacht trip around the Adriatic Sea.

Borkai, a mayor since 2006, was allegedly accompanied by a male friend, and a number of prostitutes.

The footage was also posted on Pornhub, the world's largest adult website.

Since the video leaked, Borkai was forced to cancel public appearances and claimed he was being targeted in a smear campaign to oust him from office.

He said initially: “I consider the lies published about me to be part of an opposition campaign aimed to divert attention away from their own incompetence.”

But he later admitted that he took part in the orgy and refused to step down.

He also posted a family photo on Facebook with the caption: “We hold on. For better or worse.”

Scandal-hit Zsolt Borkai posted a family photo with the caption “We hold on."

The sex scandal began a week before Sunday's local elections in which mayors and assembly members will be elected for five years.

In the fallout, Budapest Mayor Istvan Tarlos said Borkai was "unworthy" of his title, Hungary Today reported.

Tarlos said: “It is undefendable, unacceptable and unworthy."
