A new video has surfaced of Sky News presenter and columnist Andrew Bolt sending his fists flying at two masked protesters who ambushed him yesterday at a Melbourne restaurant.
CCTV footage was released yesterday showing a woman approaching Bolt at the restaurant to get a selfie, only for two men to appear out of nowhere and spray him with some “sticky liquid with glitter and dye”, according to Bolt.
Another video has since been uploaded on social media by the cameraman who was flanking the attackers, and shows the Sky News host was quite capable of fending off the two protesters, beating one of them over the head repeatedly.
