Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios stormed off during his second round match at the Italian Open after his serve was broken in the final set.
After sending a forehand wide, Kyrgios used offensive language, to which the chair umpire warned him for unsportsmanlike conduct.
He reacted to the umpire’s call by throwing his racket, kicking a bottle and launching a chair into the middle of the court. Norway’s Casper Ruud progressed to the next round as Kyrgios forfeited.
