LIVE COM­BAT

Business monthly (Egypt) - - ME­DIA LITE -

TV view­ers of the talk show “At 10 p.m.” were treated to an on-the-air spar­ring match among two mid­dleaged foot­ball com­men­ta­tors.

Fel­low guest Ahmed Al Tayeb ac­cused Shobeir of ly­ing, and things got in­creas­ingly heated when Shobeir ac­cused Al Tayeb of “work­ing for Qatar” and swore on his wife and daugh­ter’s lives that he was telling the truth. The dra­matic cli­max came when Shobeir picked up his glass of wa­ter and hurled it at Al Tayeb. Luck­ily, pro­duc­ers man­aged to cut to a com­mer­cial as the at­tack es­ca­lated.
