The incident took place at the Austrian F1 Grand Prix on Sunday where Sky Presenter Natalie Pinkham approached Werner for an interview who is enjoying his holiday in the country after his National team Germany was axed out of Euros competition by England following a 2-0 defeat.
The German star has not been in his best form ever since he joined Chelsea and has faced criticisms for missing one-on-one goals in major tournaments.
While introducing him to speak, reporter Pinkham said: "We've got Timo Werner here, Chelsea and Germany's goalkeeper. It's good to have you with us, how are you?"
Werner who appeared a little bit startled simply replied: "I'm fine, thank you."
However, it didn't take long before Football fans stormed the internet with a section attacking the reporter for not being well informed of Werner's roles before going on air while others trolled Werner. Below are some of the reactions from football fans.
