A broadcaster has become an internet hit after he stopped two women from kissing him during a live report about the Boston Marathon bomb suspects - and then barely missed a beat as he continued to camera.

Standing in front of floral tributes, Fox News reporter Mike Tobin was speaking about the timeline of the bombs when two women ran towards him trying to kiss his cheeks.

Mr Tobin was working for the Fox Report with Shepard Smith and was mid-way through a report on FBI allegations on how the bomb attack that left three people dead was carried out.

As they interrupted him, the reporter held out both arms to push them away.

He said 'Please don't do that' before managing to continue almost seamlessly with the rest of the report.

 

The reporter, who has covered wars in the Middle East and Pakistan, said the pair were 'inappropriate'.

He later tweeted: 'Heckling comes with the biz. But it's not like they would not no the sbjct. I hope their friends let thm no it wz inappropriate'.

After the interruption, viewers took to Twitter to praise the way Mr Tobin handled the situation.

Grant Friedman wrote: '@MikeTobinFox eyes on the sides of your head. Nice work!'

Tradd Slayton also praised the reporter, writing: 'That was great Mike fought off 2 kiss bombs and didn't miss a beat!'

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, the youngest Boston bomber suspect, was formally charged yesterday with using 'weapons of mass destruction' after the win bombings on 15 April that killed three people and injured more than 180.

Second suspect and older brother Tamerlan Tzarnaev, 26, was killed during a firefight with police early Friday morning.

Well, he handled that with professional aplomb--they were waaay out of line (and one appeared to be a granny on the right with the scarf) and neither were pretty, to add to the equation--not that this matters mind you. But it's just that usually it's the more attractive girls that have that much nerve, in my experience.

They should be arrested for disorderly conduct and harassment, if the roles were reversed (two men attempting to kiss a female reporter) their Azzes would be in jail right now.

They're probably congratulating themselves on the attention they got. First thing that comes to mind: 'incredibly stupid'!
