Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni said on Friday she had separated from her television journalist partner Andrea Giambruno, who has drawn criticism in recent weeks for sexist comments. The split comes as the 46-year-old prime minister celebrates her first year in office at the head of a right-wing coalition government that has defended the traditional family as one of its policy hallmarks.
A television show broadcast off-air video excerpts showing him using foul language, touching his groin and appearing to make advances to a female colleague.

The TV journalist had been widely criticised in August for comments interpreted by many as victim-blaming, following a gang rape case.
