A man brazenly groped and smooched a TV journalist as she reported on the World Cup from Russia.
Julieth Gonzalez Theran, a reporter for German TV news channel Deutsche Welle, was broadcasting from the city of Saransk last week — before the first match even kicked off — when a man in a backward baseball hat jumped into the shot, grabbed her breast and kissed her on the cheek.
Theran didn't let the sleazy intruder faze her — and kept on reporting.
She then posted a video of the attack to her Instagram, writing, "We do not deserve this treatment. We are equally as professional and deserving."

"I share the joy of football, but we must identify the line between affection and harassment," the Columbia native added.
Commenters on the video, which has been viewed over 3,000 times, were outraged.
"These things should not happen! You are intelligent, beautiful and a great woman," wrote one woman.
Someone else added: "You handled yourself really well but the man is a first-class imbecile and disrespectful."
The man hasn't yet been identified.
