Melissa Reddy appeared in the stands during the quarter-final match between France and Portugal at Euro 2024. She is a well-known "Sky Sports" journalist who frequently posts bold pictures on social media.

The French team has not been impressive since the beginning of the tournament, but they advanced from the group stage and then, in the knockout phase, defeated Belgium (1-0) and Portugal on penalties (5-3).

Thus, the French national team became the first team in the history of the European Championship to reach the semi-finals without scoring a goal from open play. Didier Deschamps' team has scored three goals at Euro 2024.

It’s no wonder that fans during the France vs. Portugal match were not focusing on the players but on the famous "Sky Sports" journalist.

Melissa Reddy appeared in the stands at Saturday's match wearing a leather skirt with a slit and a League of Ireland team shirt - Cork City, at Volksparkstadion in Hamburg.

Reddy is a South African football journalist. Reddy left her position as a football correspondent at The Independent in March 2022 to become a reporter for Sky Sports and Sky Sports News.

Reddy is 37 years old and enjoys great interest on social media. Her Instagram profile is followed by over 230,000 people.

Journalists are making a splash at Euro 2024

Another journalist making a splash at Euro 2024 is Laura Woods. She has gained many fans over years of working for various TV channels. Her Instagram account has more than 765,000 followers.

Woods is currently in Germany, working as a reporter during Euro 2024. On 2 July, she celebrated her 37th birthday, and on this occasion, her partner Adam Gollard surprised her.

Woods previously worked at Amazon Prime Video and DAZN. She changed jobs because she was tempted by the prospect of working on elite football competitions.

Woods last shined on the red carpet in April this year at the Sport Industry Awards. The glamorous journalist appeared in a black dress with a deep neckline, dazzling guests and photographers.
