Dirty Tackle

Sky Germany’s Jessica Kastrop targeted by pitch sprinklers this time

Dirty Tackle

Sky Sports Germany's Jessica Kastrop always ends up becoming a target from her place alongside the pitch. First, she was hit in the back of the head by an errant ball. Then she was doused with beer after Borussia Dortmund won the DFB Pokal last season. Now even the sprinklers have turned on her by spraying her and her Sky colleagues before SSV Jahn Regensburg's 4-0 Pokal loss to Bayern Munich.

The Sky team was in the middle of a live segment when the sprinklers turned on and sprayed them, forcing the wet trio to retreat from their podium. Kastrop tried to carry on, but eventually moved the broadcast further down the touchline to avoid further spritzes.

When lesser journalists would have retreated to the safe confines of a cushy studio by now, Jessica Kastrop forges on at the front lines of football.
