Julieth Gonalez Theran, a reporter for Deutsche Welle’s Spanish news channel, was reporting live from the World Cup in Russia when she was approached by a fan who kissed her.
The video shows Julieth reporting outside the stadium prior to the match. When all of a sudden a man lunges into the shot and kisses her.
But what happens next is commendable. Julieth did not lose his calm and kept on reporting without any hesitation. Late, she took this issue to social media.
Sharing the video of this incident on her Instagram account she said,
“RESPECT! We don’t deserve this. We are equally valuable and professional. I share the joy of football, but we must identify the limits of affection and harassment”
Later talking to a news channel she said,
“I had been at the scene for two hours to prepare for the broadcast and there had been no interruptions. When we went live, this fan took advantage of the situation. But afterwards, when I checked to see if he was still there, he was gone.”
