BBC Breakfast's Sarah Campbell demands 'health warning' after 'brutal' scenes

BBC Breakfast’s Sarah Campbell couldn’t hide her discomfort after being subjected to the gruesome footage from the Euros.

Standing in for the usual Monday to Wednesday anchor Sally Nugent, Sarah had picked a particularly grim day to step in.

Alongside co-presenter Jon Kay, they invited sports correspondent Sarah Mulkerrins to the studio for the latest sports update.

The conversation inevitably turned to France’s narrow 1-0 win over Austria in the Euros 2024 qualifiers.

However, the spotlight quickly shifted to French superstar Kylian Mbappe’s horrific injury.

In the clash on Monday (June 17), Mbappe collided face-first into Austrian defender Kevin Danso’s shoulder in a bid to gain possession.

The aftermath was bloody; Mbappe was left with a broken nose, casting doubt over his continued participation in the tournament.

But it was the replay of the incident that really got to Sarah Campbell.

After watching the painful moment, she exclaimed: “I’m not sure I can watch that slow-motion picture of Kylian Mbappe breaking his nose any more.”

She then turned to Sarah Mulkerrins and half-jokingly requested: “Maybe give us a health warning next time.”

Thankfully, the remainder of the sports discussion was free from any more graphic content.

Post-match, Mbappe, aged 25, was rushed to a hospital in Dusseldorf where his broken nose was confirmed. The French Football Federation later stated that immediate surgery was not on the cards for the injured player.

The player’s woes didn’t end with the broken nose. Following the incident, France intended to replace Mbappe with Olivier Giroud.

However, play resumed before the substitution could take place. Mbappe then re-entered the pitch without authorisation and sat down, resulting in him being issued a yellow card.
