A regular work day for a reporter turned out to be nightmare after a pig hogged him.
Lazos Mantikos, a reporter for ANT1 TV’s Good Morning Greece, was delivering a report on Tuesday when he was chased by the pig on live TV.
The incident occurred when the Greek reporter was in the town of Kineta to report on flood damage.
The incident shows Mr Mantikos being pursued relentlessly by the pig as he attempts to complete his report.
“Good morning, we have an issue. Giorgos can you hear me,” Mr Mantikos says.
“We have a pig here that has been chasing us since this morning … folks sorry I can’t stand because it’s biting me.”
Back at the studio, Mr Mantikos’ colleagues can be seen trying to control their laughter.

Mantikos’ colleague was among those who couldn’t resist cracking jokes at his expense.
“Lazos, because it’s a tragic issue and we are counting our wounds in Kineta, try and work things out with the female pig,” Mr Papadakis said to laughter in the studio.
