The brother of former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has knocked an Israeli sports reporter unconscious.
Basketball executive Irmi Olmert was apparently upset over some on-air comments by a reporter for Israel’s Channel 5 sports network.
Mr Olmert confronted him after a game and ended up punching him in the face, briefly knocking him unconscious.
Sport 5 footage of the incident last night shows the two arguing, followed by a loud thump and then the reporter lying motionless on the basketball court.
The actual punch is not captured, but Mr Olmert is heard saying: “I’ll show you for speaking to me that way. I punched him. Did you hear what he said about me?”
Israeli police have questioned Mr Olmert, while the reporter was hospitalised and later released.
