The Ivorian football fan who was captured in a viral video having what appeared to be an intimate conversation with a lady during the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament has been identified as Anselme Santos.
The incident happened at the Charles Konan Banny Stadium during the match between Senegal and Ivory Coast on Monday.
Santos has now detailed the story behind the conversation, disclosing that he was requesting the contact details of the lady, according to Actu Foot.
He explained that he was unsuccessful in his pursuit of the lady and consequently apologized for his actions.
“In the euphoria, I told [the woman in the video] ‘Give me your number’. It wasn’t mean, but she didn’t want to. So I didn’t insist. I would like to take this chance to apologize to my wife and my children,” Actu Foot quoted him to have said.
Ivory Coast eliminated champions Senegal in the latest shocker installation at the ongoing competition.
The Elephants on Monday took on the red-hot Teranga Lions in a round-of-16 game played at Stade de Yamoussoukro.
The Ivorians came into the game with an interim coach, having suffered consecutive defeats to Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea.
In 90 minutes of the game, a strike from Habib Diallo was canceled out by a penalty kick converted by Frank Kessie.
After a goalless extra time, the game had to be separated through a penalty shootout.
The hosts showed class and secured a 5-4 win to knock out Senegal while advancing to the quarter- finals.
