Sky could bring in bodyguards for its pundits after alleged whim of Roy Keane

Sky may be looking to hire bodyguards for its pundits after an alleged ‘headbutt’ on Roy Keane on Sunday.

During the closing stages of Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Manchester United, the legendary midfielder was involved in an altercation.

He and his co-pundit Micah Richards were thought to be heading to the side of the pitch for their post-match broadcast.

An unidentified man then reportedly headbutted Keane, with video showing Richards holding him down.

An eyewitness claims to have seen blood on the floor and the Metropolitan Police announced on Monday that a 42-year-old man had been arrested on suspicion of assault. [ABH].

Sky are set to review their security following the incident at one of the Emirates Stadium hospitality areas, as reported by the Daily Mail.

They might consider bringing in bodyguards, which they did to protect Australian pundits during their coverage of The Ashes.

The report adds that a review will take place during the international break, with competitors in the TNT Sports broadcast also having to assess their safety.

Following the incident, a Sky Sports spokesperson said: “We understand the police are investigating a suspected assault by a member of the public immediately before the footage was released on social media.

“In the footage seen, Micah Richards was acting to defuse a situation.”

The incident with Keane allegedly took place shortly after Man United star Alejandro Garnacho’s goal was subsequently ruled out by VAR for offside.

Arsenal then secured a dramatic win as Declan Rice and Gabriel Jesus both scored in stoppage time to steal the three points United thought they had won them late.
