DTotD: Venezuelan player kicked in the back by pitch invader during post-match interview
May 14, 2015
Carabobo FC striker Aquiles Ocanto was minding his own business and answering questions from a TV reporter during a live post-match interview when a flying psycho delivered a spine-busting kick to his back. Ocanto was down for the count and the pitch invader who put him there quickly ran off.
According to the Guardian, Carabobo later tweeted that Ocanto was fine and hadn’t suffered any injuries in the attack. He might start conducting all interviews with his back against a wall, though.
This has been the Dirty Tackle of the Day: a chronicling of unfortunate events.
