That the Qatar 2022 World Cup is particular due to the exotic and luxurious location in which it takes place is nothing new. However, some of the more exotic situations that keep happening there never cease to amaze. It happened to the journalist Sofía Martínez, who received an expensive gift from an Arab sheikh while making a live mobile. “I can’t believe it,” she laughed.
Martínez, who covers the Cup for Pública TV and for the Perros de la Calle radio show on Urbana Play, was doing a live mobile from the street when he ran into a millionaire from Doha driving his Lamborghini.
As part of the cell phone that went live radio streaming, the journalist agreed with the man get in the car to show inside what it was like. There he found a parcel closed with a bow in a compartment.
“And for me?” Sophie asked. “Yes, it’s for you,” the man replied, as the drivers laughed on the floor. No one quite understood what was happening. whether it was a lift attempt or a quip “Is that a goat undercover?” joked another of the drivers.
But it was actually a gift, a little box that also had a replica of the World Cup attached to one of the bows. The first thing Martínez did was take the replica and put it in his pocket, joking that that was the gift.
The reporter even joked that it was a pearl necklace. “It turns out to be a pearl necklace and I pass out,” he said, stepping away from the Qatari car to open the package. PBut when she opened the package, she saw that it really was a gift. Even more practical than a necklace.
Is that it was a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Black mobile, a high-end model that costs around 383 thousand pesos in Argentina. It includes three cameras, including a 108MP and a 48MP front camera. 6.8″ Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen. Processor: Octa core. Resolution: 3088 x 144.
“I just got this”Surprised, Sofía continued counting, as she opened her phone to check it. “Oh, I hope he doesn’t ask for anything in return,” commented speaker Evelyn Botto from her Buenos Aires apartment.. “He came to give me a phone and I just died here,” she continued.
“From now on you are under the watch of the Qatari government,” laughed Harry Salvarrey, another of the show’s hosts. “This one has a chip that investigates everythingright?” Martínez joked.
“I’m still in shock,” he commented hours later on his social networks, responding to some messages from followers who also celebrated the incident. Is that another of the members who was there took a watch as a gift.
Martínez also works for the ESPN signal and some coverage for NBA Latam. She has long been in a relationship with the journalist Diego Leuco, who is also engaged in Qatar.
Last week, the journalist marked a milestone in her coverage of the World Cup for public TV, when she participated in the first broadcast reported and commented by a female triad, alongside journalist Lola del Carril and journalist Ángela Lerena.
