Police have reportedly arrested a Dutch Ajax fan who physically assaulted two journalists from the Telegraaf while they were filming a live report in London on Tuesday.
Pim Sedee and cameraman Thom Schelstraete were doing a background report on the match with Tottenham Hotspur yesterday when the Dutchman hit them both.
The Telegraaf reports that after they officially reported the incident – which was on tape – police in London arrested a suspect.
After being hit in the face, Sedee had the presence of mind to comment that the assault was live on web tv, which did not stop the aggressor from then attacking the cameraman.
Sedee later tweeted that both are ‘completely okay’. Ajax, meanwhile, won the match 1-0.
