A pig of a day

A reporter had to cut short a live broadcast because a pig would not leave him alone.

Lazos Mantikos was in Kineta, Greece, reporting on flood damage, but his broadcast took a different turn when a large sow started chasing him live on air.

The journalist jumped around as he tried to avoid the pig – which could be seen nudging into the reporter’s legs – and continue his report for Greek TV channel ANT1.

At one point, he was even chased off camera, reported the Independent.

The presenters in the studio could not help laughing as Lazos – who did not seem to be laughing himself – ran around.
