Video: German reporter gets smacked in the head by ball

Posted by - August 25, 2010 - Football videos, Germany


Everything about this video is great. I mean, watching someone get unexpectedly hit in the head by a football is usually pretty funny. Throw into the equation the fact that you can watch the ball’s trajectory all the way from the ground to the reporter’s head and the that she is delivering a live TV link at the time, and it is just perfect.

The unfortunate presenter is Jessica Kastrop of Sky Sports who is interviewing Stuttgart director Fredi Bobic ahead of their Sunday night clash with Mainz.

The source of the grass-to-cranium missile was former Chelsea defender Khalid Boulahrouz.

Kastrop said: “The offender was Khalid Boulahrouz. But he came running to me directly and apologized. And of course I would never impute his intention…”

No, but we would.
