Italian sports presenter Diletta Leotta was targeted by chanting soccer fans who urged her to take off her top during a recent Serie A fixture in Naples.

As Leotta walked off the pitch past a section of Napoli fans at the Stadio San Paolo, the rowdy fans began chanting, “get your t**s out for the lads.”

However, the stunning presenter for DAZN Italia handled the situation gracefully. The former weather girl, dressed in a long pink skirt and white short-sleeved top, did not show any signs of being upset by the vulgar chanting.

Instead, she flashed a smile, wagged a finger in the direction of the boisterous male crowd, and gave a thumbs down.

Following the incident, many fans took to social media to defend Leotta and slam the soccer fans for their behavior.

But some criticized how she dressed.

The incident brought attention once again to past complaints about the behavior of Italian soccer fans who have often come under fire for hooliganism, as well as racist and sexist chants.
