In line with CNN's translation, Mantikos was heard addressing studio anchor Giorgos Papadakis, in accordance with a translation by CNN. saying, "Good morning, we have an issue".

"Giorgos, would you be able to hear me?"

"Now let's go to Kineta where (people) have their wounds".

"Sorry guys, I can't stand (still) because it's biting me", Mantikos said, with the swine still nipping at his heels. "This is about (wanting) that one moment of fame. I have seen male and female pigs who look for a moment of fame", studio journalist said.
