A video has gone viral after a young girl pulled a tantrum-throwing child away from a live television broadcast during a race meeting in Scotland.

Veteran Scottish broadcaster Jim Delahunt was totally unaware of the mini toddler drama unfolding behind him as he presented a live racing broadcast from races in Hamilton near Glasgow.

The girl, who appears to be the boy’s older sister, runs into shot and grabs the little boy by the collar of his jacket and drags him out of shot.

Undeterred, as the boy prefers to carry on the tantrum laying on the grass directly behind Delahunt, she looks first at the camera and then decides to step it up and grabs him by the leg and drags him out of shot.

The sports presenter and Scottish SunSport columnist Delahunt continued his report thankfully unaware of the meltdown going on behind him.

After the wrestling incident between the girl and the little boy, Hamilton Park Races sent out a plea to identify the young instant celebrities in a bid to speak to their parents.

According to the, the clip has now gone viral, having been retweeted by nearly 2000 social media users and receiving nearly 4000 likes.

The moment has been compared to a similar incident earlier this year, in which the children of Professor Robert Kelly, an expert on Korean politics, photobombed a live interview on BBC World.

Professor Kelly’s children became global sensations, with the video shared hundreds of thousands of times and sparking memes and even a follow-up interview with the entire family.
