Watch: Female FIFA World Cup 2018 Reporter Kissed And Groped By Fan On Live TV
Football and controversy go hand in hand. While the whole world is gripped with the football fever due to the ongoing World Cup in Russia, an unfortunate off-field incident has grabbed the headlines. Julieth Gonzalez Theran, a female Colombian reporter working for Deutsche Welle, a German news station, was allegedly groped by a man when she was doing a show for her channel.
While she was on air, a man appeared and forcibly kissed her cheek and grabbed her breasts.
In the video, Theran can be seen reporting at a busy square. She tells the camera that behind her is a clock counting down until the start of the World Cup in the city. And she continued with her work, a man appeared to put a hand over the reporter’s breast before kissing her on the cheek. Theran, however, kept on speaking without being distracted by the man’s antics.

She later took to Instagram to express her anger and disappointment.
“Respect!! We don’t deserve this deal. We are equally valuable and professional. I share the joy of football, but we must understand the limits of affection and harassment,” read her message.
