Jamie Carragher had to attend to CBS presenter Kate Abdo after she started choking at the start of the Champions League Milan derby program.
The start of the delightful first leg in the semi-final between AC and Inter Milan did not go according to plan.
When Abdo started her opening segment, she had to stop her introduction, pause, and then cough.
Joined by former Liverpool defender Carragher, Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and ex-Manchester City man Micah Richards as experts for the match between two of Italy’s biggest clubs.
Carragher had to come to Abdo’s aid and give her a bottle of water, while Henry also checked that she was okay.

Abdo began, “There’s more drama to come. The second semi-final starts today. AC Milan and Inter Milan, share a stadium, a city and now the rare opportunity to get one step closer to the Champions League final.’
She managed to almost get to the end of those lines, but struggled noticeably before stopping, laughing, and turning to her colleagues.
Carragher asked, “Are you okay?”
Abdo said ‘no’ before turning around, putting one hand in front of the camera and covering her mouth with the other as she coughed.
Carragher rose from his chair and shot to give a bottle of water.
After the annoyance had subsided, Abdo continued, “Thank you very much. I’m sorry, everyone. It was a great introduction. I totally killed it.”
