Fiola, lost in the moment, celebrated by running towards the crowd inside the full capacity 67,000 Puskas Arena.
His emotions then got the better of him as he wildly swiped at a pitch-side reporter’s desk, leaving her in shock.
The images went viral following the incident with reporter Edit Szalay becoming an internet sensation.
With the dust settled, Fiola has apologised to Szalay on Instagram by sending her a video.
According to Hungarian journalist Matyas Szeli, the player said: “Hi Edit, sorry for overwhelming you, that was one of the nicest moment of our lives, we’ve seen after the initial shock you were happy for our goal.
“Good luck for the rest of the Euros.“
Fiola didn’t cause any major damage, reportedly just knocking off water bottles and papers.

Despite Antoine Griezmann’s equaliser, Hungary’s point remains one of shocks of the tournament so far.
They face an uphill battle to progress from their group that also includes giants Germany and Portugal.
Meanwhile the Euro final could be moved from Wembley to Budapest if Uefa officials and sponsors are forced to self isolate due to coronavirus restrictions.
