A female Colombian reporter, Julieth Gonzalez Theran, who works for Deutsche Welle, a German news station, was allegedly groped by a man when she was doing a show for her channel last week for the ongoing FFA World Cup 2018.
While on air, a man appeared and forcibly kissed her cheek and grabbed her breasts, according to a report in Yahoo.co.uk.

Following the incident, she took to Instagram to share 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. However, the identity of the man is still unknown.
The World Cup kicked off last week in Moscow, where there have already been upsets so far. While defending champions Germany fell to Mexico 0-1, the most recent shocks came when Japan and Senegal beat Colombia and Poland respectively, with both ending with a scoreline of 2-1.
