Algeria striker Rafik Saifi has been involved in an altercation with a journalist after his team was eliminated from the World Cup.
The incident following Wednesday's 1-0 loss to the United States happened at Loftus Versfeld.
A female reporter from an Algerian publication was heard shouting at Saifi, who left the stadium holding his lip and refusing to respond to questions.
Algeria finished at the bottom of Group C with just one point and was eliminated from the tournament.
