Normally used to breaking news, a South African TV journalist became the news when he was mugged as he was about to go live on-air.

Despite the presence of the cameras the muggers insisted on robbing Vuyo Mvoko. He eventually handed over his phone after being threatened with a gun. Off-camera the thieves took several mobile phones and laptops.

Mvoko had been waiting to report live from outside a Johannesburg hospital where Zambian President Edgar Lungu was receiving treatment.

The video of the mugging has gone viral after being uploaded to the internet.
