Top 14: cameraman with broken bone after being hit by gamers

The scene took place on Sunday during the Top 14 meeting between the Union Bordeaux-Bègles and Biarritz (30-27). One of the game’s cameramen was seriously injured after being accidentally hit by players.

At the end of the match, the cameraman named Olivier stood at the end of the sideline to film the action of the UBB as closely as possible, which led to the test of Federico Mori (76th). But carried away in his tracks, the Bordeaux winger could not avoid the cameraman, just like the Biarrots Barnabé Couilloud and Henry Speight. The three players mowed down Olivier at full speed, who was immediately taken care of by the emergency services present at the Chaban-Delmas stadium before being evacuated on a stretcher.

At the edge of the field, the journalist Jenny Demay had been reassuring about his state of health. “If our cameraman’s family is watching us, he’s fine. He is smiling, but he actually has a knee that has gone a bit on the action, ”she said on the air.

But the examinations carried out revealed a fracture of the tibial plateau. “The latest news is unfortunately not as good as announced yesterday in the CRC. Our cameraman is suffering from a fractured tibial plateau and will have to be immobilized for six weeks. Courage and good recovery Olivier ”, posted this Monday, the presenter of the Canal Rugby Club Isabelle Ithurburu on her Twitter account.
