ITV revealed the damage shortly after Brazil’s controversial 3-1 victory over Croatia. The studio also contained  Lee Dixon, Fabio Cannavaro and Patrick Vieira and would have included Roy Keane had he not pulled out of their World Cup coverage.

There were also suggestions that presenter Adrian Chiles was almost hit by a glass bottle as he went out of the studio to try and calm protesters.

The news broke on the same day that a news producer for CNN was left injured after being hit by a stun grenade.

Up to 30 people were arrested during protests yesterday with police broke up with stun grenades, rubber bullets and tear gas.
