Footballer ‘caught staring at’ female sports reporter in funny viral pic

A young footballer appeared to be caught checking out a female sports presenter at the weekend.

Juventus' young American star Weston McKennie was captured by TV cameras appearing to stare at Italian reporter Diletta Leotta.

The 22-year-old went viral on Twitter following the hilarious pic which was taken during Juve's 1-1 draw with Verona in Serie A on Saturday night.

McKennie was snapped looking in the direction of the blonde Diletta, who hosts Serie A games on DAZN.

Diletta, 29, was presenting from close to the Juventus bench ahead of the game, and social media users couldn't help but notice his face as cameras panned towards him.

A number of tweets joked about the incident, with one social media user sharing the pic with the words: "Oh well let's think about the best thing of the evening, the look of McKennie."

Another joked: "McKennie one of us."

While a third shared the picture along with the hashtag: "#NewProfilePic."

A passionate football fan, Diletta shared a picture of herself at Verona's Stadio Bentegodi at the weekend on her Instagram.
