A Chinese broadcaster cried on air after Italy's World Cup exit

Thursday June 26th, 2014

Following Italy's World Cup 1-0 loss to Uruguay that eliminated them from the World Cup, a Chinese reporter working on CCTV's (China's dominant TV station) World Cup coverage show cried on air. 

Now before we feel sorry for Liu Yuxi's heartbreak over her team's loss, let the record show that, on her Weibo (which is essentially China's version of Twitter) account, she indicates that she is a "diehard" fan of many more teams, including PortugalArgentina and Brazil. So yeah, she's that type of fan.
