Venezuelan striker Aquiles Ocanto is recovering after being kicked in the back by a fan while conducting a live television interview.

The Carabobo FC player was talking reporter Maria Alexandra Bastidas live on Meridiano Televisión after his side’s goalless draw with Aragua when he was sent flying by a vicious kick.

The club issued a statement to say that Ocanto was unhurt by the incident, tweeting: “Aquiles Ocanto is well and has not sustained any injury. We reject such acts of violence in football.”
