Previous to this, he was Europe Correspondent in Sky News’ Brussels bureau.

He has covered the inauguration of Pope Francis, the trial of the mass killer Anders Breivik in Norway, the Soma mine disaster in Turkey, the annexation of Crimea and the continuing civil war in Syria. He also reported on the funeral of Nelson Mandela at his tribal homeland.

Previous to this, Robert was based in Washington where he covered the historic Presidential election race in 2008 interviewing Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Rudy Giuliani. He broadcast live from the crowds thronging Pennsylvania Avenue to watch President Obama’s inauguration.
