Mexican sports reporter Maria Fernanda Mora is definitely one not to be messed with after she was apparently groped during a live broadcast.
Mora was reporting outside the stadium after local Mexican team Guadalajara beat Toronto and was soon surrounded by a group jubilant and apparently well-meaning Guadalajara fans.
However, one sleazy fatty decided to take advantage of the reporter and allegedly groped Mora’s backside not once but twice.
Having none of it, a visibly shaken Mora took matters into her own hands and delivered Mr Creep a whopping crack with her TV mic.
Mora later said of the incident: “What happened to me at dawn on Thursday, happens to thousands of women every day in public spaces.
“The difference is that it happened to me during a live link on television and I decided to defend myself. My reaction is what turned the fact into something viral,” she said.
