Topless Argentina fan faces possible jail time after BBC show raunchy celebration

The fan was caught live on BBC

One Argentinian fan could regret their celebrations after she was caught topless live on air.

Argentina celebrated winning their first World Cup since 1986 after they beat France on penalties at the Lusail Stadium on Sunday.

Gonzalo Montiel was the man who slotted home the winning spot kick but it was dubbed as Lionel Messi’s special day as the little man from Rosario finally completed his boyhood dream of winning the World Cup with his country.

But one fan could face consequences after she was caught taking off her shirt, with BBC cameras picking up the moment she removed the top and began jubilantly waving it up and down in the air.

Qatar has strict governing laws on how women should dress in public – which in short terms means they are expected to cover up at all times.

The Qatar Tourism Authority also asked for visiting fans to “respect local culture” and “avoid excessively revealing clothing” and ensuring that both shoulders and knees are covered.

Earlier in the tournament model Ivana Knoll, more popularly known as Miss Croatia, was criticised by Qatari locals for her raunchy choice of clothing at the World Cup.

Miss Croatia was stopped by security during Croatia’s quarter final win against Brazil and was prevented from taking photos with supporters.

“They don’t allow the fans to take photos with me or pose for photos down here on the railing. I then asked them why they were so rude,” she told Bild.

“Everyone wants photos with me, even the locals. Only on Twitter was there a negative reaction from a Qatari. But he probably just wanted attention.”
