Linde Merckpoel a female reporter who went with the intent to give a peck on the cheek to Belgian rider Stijn Steels was accidentally kissed on her check by him as she left the interview segment red-faced embarrassed.
In the footage, Merckpoel, 34, put her arm around the 29-year-old Steels before she leaned in to give him a kiss on the cheek. But Steels turned to give her a peck at the same time and they unintentionally locked lips.
The pair both immediately disengaged in shock. She shared the shocking but hilarious clip with her 109,000 Twitter followers and added the caption: “Sorry baby. I can explain.”
Steels replied: “Let’s be serious. What would you like and what would we do with the earnings?”
As reports has it, the Belgian biker claimed he has been bombarded with messages since the awkward video was posted on social media.
He said: “I have received a huge number of text messages.“On Instagram, even people from Russia, Germany and so on have sent me a message.
“In Russia that video has been viewed more than two million times.“I have driven a super bad course, but have never received so much attention.”
