Sky Sports 'consider bodyguards' for pundits as Roy Keane incident prompts security review
Sky Sports are reportedly considering hiring bodyguards for their pundits after the incident that saw Roy Keane and Micah Richards confronted on Sunday.
The duo were on duty for Arsenal's dramatic win over Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium. Former Red Devils captain Keane was allegedly headbutted as he tried to make his way down to the pitch near to the end of the Premier League clash.
The Metropolitan Police have since arrested a 42-year-old man on suspicion of assault. Sky have launched their own investigation into the incident, which came in the final top-flight match before this week's international break.
According to the Daily Mail, the broadcaster will use the break to carry out their review. They will also decide on whether to beef up security at stadiums with the use of bodyguards, while the routes taken by on-air talent will also be looked at.
Keane and colleague Richards made their way through the confines of the Emirates stadium, when the incident is believed to have taken place, to take up a position pitchside before the final whistle.
