A TV camera operator has been slammed on social media for showing a COCKROACH during a hockey match at Tokyo 2020.
Argentina were taking on Spain in Pool B of the women’s hockey event.
With the former leading 1-0 with around five minutes to go, Argentine coverage of the match decided to focus on a pitchside cockroach.
The commentator on TyC Sports simply said: “La Cucaracha.”
And the moment has baffled fans online.
One scathingly wrote: “Olympic athletes competing at a high level? Not interested. Cockroach waddling? Yes.”
A second joked: “When you get a sports media job, but you’re not that into sports.”
And a third sighed: “That roach did not need that much screen time.”
Although a fourth added: “Give this little guy a gold medal.”

When the coverage did get back to showing the game, Argentina went on to win 3-0.
They have since beaten China 3-2 e Japão 2-1.
But they fell this morning to Australia, losing 2-0.
