Sports journalist Rustam Imamov commented on his post on Telegram, where he spoke about the rough treatment of the skater Alina Zagitova with the media. This is reported by “Championship.com”.
Imams, representing Sport Express, called the incident “an annoying misunderstanding.” He noted that he had already settled the conflict with the representatives of the athlete. He also apologized to Zagitova herself and her family. Earlier in Telegram, Imamov accused the athlete of rude treatment of media representatives and threats to “sue” for refusing to remove the photo with the skater.
“Initially, I did not know all the details. In the arena, anything happens: they grabbed her by the hand, stood guard at the toilet. All of this is unacceptable. Of course, after such a desire to communicate with the press disappears, “Imamov emphasized.
Earlier, the journalist was outraged by the behavior of Zagitova, who was in the stands of the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) match between Ak Bars and Metallurg. According to Imamov, the Olympic champion threatened to sue the journalist for taking a picture of the skater in the arena.
