thats a bokeh ball! there must have been a bright light there, so when your aperture is large, it creates a bokeh ball.

To me , it's really a distraction . Maybe I'm a little to picky , but I was thinking a little PP would take care of it .

Somebody's watch must have been glaring at the right angle to catch the sun to make that specular highlight.

If it really does annoy you, just clone some other OOF object on there.

Ridiculously easy to correct, but doing so might have violated some journalistic ethics.

If it was mine I would have done it before it was released , unless the contract prohibited any PP .

I don't know about journalistic ethics , maybe something in the contract .

There was the case a year or two ago in which a prize winning photo was disqualified and the prize taken away when it was discovered that in the original there was an additional man standing behind one of the subjects and entirely unseen accept for his foot, which the photographer cloned out.
The Washington Post was recently censured for printing an HDR photo, although the tonal range it rendered made it closer to reality than a single "unmanipulated" photo.
Photojournalists have become very careful about altering "reality". That reflection may even have been part of the story, maybe the hitter also found it distracting.
