Yekaterinburg: Júlia Guimaraes, a Brazilian sports journalist was lauded for her reaction towards a man who tried to kiss her while she was reporting for the World Cup in Yekaterinburg.

Taking to Twitter, she said, "It's hard to find the words ... Luckily, I have never experienced this in Brazil. Over here it has happened twice. Sad! Shameful!"
