The sports reporter Andrea Kaiser (40) in the service of the private broadcaster Sat.1 was involved in a strange and painful incident on Friday evening in the game between Borussia Mönchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund (4: 2). During an interview with German international Youssoufa Moukoko (17), Kaiser was hit in the head by a ball. The BVB star catches Kaiser and asks if everything is okay. The journalist smiles professionally away at the incident and continues with the interview.

The entire conversation can still be accessed on the Sat.1 homepage. In an interview with the “Bild” newspaper, Kaiser explained the context of the campaign. Orange balls had previously been distributed to Gladbach fans: “Even during the interview, people were calling my name and Moukoko’s. While I was asking a question, a heavy shot hit me in the left forehead.” As a result, her neck snapped back: “Maybe I have a little whiplash. I was taped on the neck and still have a bit of a headache, but I’m fine.”

The shooter was caught by the folders, the article goes on to say, and his personal details were recorded. Kaiser continues: “I was recommended to file a complaint. The guy probably wanted attention, i.e. autographs and selfies, but then apologized.” You have therefore refrained from an ad.
