After the press conference ended, there was reportedly another skirmish in which Wanliss again played a major role – this was probably to settle differences with Siraj’s coach. Wanliss ended up being doused with water after another verbal exchange, as you can see in the gallery.

The afternoon session, which was already attended by the media and spectators, did not even take place due to the ambient animosity. Instead, a fight broke out, which was quickly broken up by security. You can see what this intense media day looked like in the gallery.
