itemprop="headline name">Female World Cup 2018 reporter kissed and groped on breast by fan on live TV
A female sports reporter working at the World Cup has been kissed and groped live on camera and posted the footage of the incident to social media.
Colombian reporter Julieth Gonzalez Theran was working for German channel Deutsche Welle in the Russian city of Saransk when the incident occurred.
In the video, Theran can be seen in a bust square and she tells the camera that behind her is a clock counting down until the start of the World Cup in the city.
As she continues speaking a fan comes into shop and appears to ut a hand over the reporter's breast and kisses her on the cheek.
Theran keeps on reporting to the camera without being sidetracked by the fan's actions.
She has now posted the footage of the incident to social media and commented: "I was there for around two hours preparing my things and nothing happened to me. But when we were live that man took advantage of it.
"He came at me, gave me a kiss and he touched my breast. I had to continue, afterwards I tried to see if the man was still there but he had left."
The Colombian presenter added: "We do not deserve this treatment. We are equally as professional and deserving. I share the joy of football but we must identify the limits between affection and harassment."
Netizens were outraged at the man's behaviour, with 'camilope22' commenting: "These things should not happen! You are intelligent, beautiful and a great woman."
And 'danielrubiof' added: "You handled yourself really well but the man is a first-class imbecile and disrespectful."
However, some users were not as supportive, with 'johnchinome' writing:"What's wrong? You cannot say hello to someone with a kiss on the cheek anymore because it is harassment?"
The man has not been identified.
