Presenter faints during premiere debate
A televised duel between two candidates for the successor to outgoing British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been called off after a medical emergency.
The debate between Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss is in full swing after the death of UK broadcaster TalkTV presenter Kate McCann. As the broadcaster announced Tuesday evening, the duel will not continue on medical advice, even though McCann is doing well.
The duel between British Foreign Minister Truss and former finance minister Sunak was surprisingly interrupted half an hour after it began. TV viewers watched Truss break his speech, startled, and mumbled, “Oh my god.” Viewers sent Kate McCann wishes on Twitter.
“Sun” correspondent Harry Cole, who was supposed to conduct the duel with McCann, was absent at short notice due to the coronavirus, as he announced on Twitter Tuesday morning. McCann then wrote that the two had prepared for the debate together – whether in person or virtually openly.
TalkTV said that both the candidates are doing well. The two remained in the studio and would talk to the readers of “Surya” invited to the debate.
Truss expressed regret at the end of the duel and tweeted that he was relieved to hear McCann was recovering. Sunak thanked him for the “great debate” and wrote on Twitter that it was good to hear that McCann was recovering. He is waiting to be “grilled” again by him soon.
