Esther Sedlaczek and Bastian Schweinsteiger are currently being celebrated online.
At the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, both will collect plenty of plus points.
Now an Instagram photo makes everyone smile.
Doha - Even after the early elimination of the German national team at this year's soccer World Cup in Qatar, there are positive World Cup moments for German TV viewers.
These include the appearances of the two ARD moderators Esther Sedlaczek and Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The duo has noticeably gained shape in recent weeks.

Sedlaczek convinces against Bierhoff, Schweinsteiger confidently with Flick
Above all, the critical interview with the now retired team manager Oliver Bierhoff after the duel against Costa Rica increased Sedlaczek's reputation with the World Cup viewers.
Bastian Schweinsteiger was also well received by the audience with his opinionated statements to national coach Hansi Flick and the national team.
At this World Cup, the former soccer professional even convinced many critics who used to accuse him of glossing over things too often and benefited noticeably from his new sparring partner in front of the camera.
However, both seem to get along well privately, at least cheerful Instagram posts suggest it, as reported by tz.de.

Esther Sedlaczek: Instagram photo makes faces cheerful
Just recently, Esther Sedlaczek posted another snapshot on Instagram (as of December 9, 2022), and the reactions of the users were not long in coming.
In the photo, the 37-year-old can be seen with ARD commentator Tom Bartels, shortly before the game between the Netherlands and Argentina kicks off.
Next to the picture are the lines: “Comment and moderation are present.
Only the teams are missing.”
Apparently, one or the other Instagram user missed Schweinsteiger in the photo - or at least recognized a resemblance to Bartels.
With a wink, one post said: "Has Schweinsteiger grown?" In fact, Bartels towers slightly over Sedlaczek, who is leaning against him - who, like Bastian Schweinsteiger, measures 1.83 meters.
