Sky News presenter Michelle Clifford was reporting live from Rome on the latest developments in the coronavirus outbreak in Italy earlier this day when a big seagull landed on the railing behind her shoulder.
Although the reporter appeared to flinch, she was not distracted by the bird a lot and went on after a remark: "Seagulls are prolific here in Rome."
After the report was finished, a news anchor said: "Michelle and seagull, thank you very much indeed."
After the video was shared online, netizens came up with their interpretations of the funny episode.
