The man arrived in Sao Paolo from Casablanca and missed his flight to New York from where he was to return to Germany.

He did not have enough money to purchase a new ticket, according to the Globo news portal.

In surveillance footage, the roughly two-metre-tall man is seen suddenly standing up and abusing and swinging his fists at a woman who is using her phone.

In another instance, the man attacked a woman who had just walked through an automatic doorway.

Other footage shows the man casually reading a book and he has harassed a total number of six women.

The man, who spends most of his time near the check-in area, arrived in Sao Paolo from Casablanca and missed his flight to New York from where he was to return to Germany.

In a television interview in which he was seen wearing a red rose in his lapel, the man denied harassing the women.

“I didn’t touch the people. I’m not a boxer,” he said.

The man’s three-month tourist visa has run out and police have set him a deadline for when he must leave Brazil which expires at the end of this week.

A spokeswoman for the German Foreign Office said the German consulate in Sao Paulo was working closely with the man and Brazilian authorities.
