A Danish football manager has been sacked from his job a day after hitting a tv reporter during an interview.
Ove Christensen took exception to what he thought were "stupid questions" from a pitchside reporter after his Randers team lost 4-0 to Brondby on Monday and hit the reporter on the arm.
The reporter in question then said "why did you hit me?" to which Christensen replied "because you did a good job" in a sarcastic manner.
A day later Christensen was out of a job, although Randers said they sacked him to try and avoid relegation and not because of his altercation with the reporter.
