A 21-year-old French tennis player was banned from the French Open after repeatedly trying to kiss a reporter who was interviewing him after his first found loss.
Maxime Hamou, who ranks 287th in the world, could not contain himself during an interview with reporter Maly Thomas, who did her best to try and stay professional while being accosted by Hamou.

“If I hadn’t been live on air, I would have punched him,” Thomas told the Huffington Post France.
The French Tennis Federation said in statement:
“The management of the tournament has decided to revoke Maxime Hamou’s accreditation following his reprehensible behavior with a journalist yesterday.”
What a sad, sad man.
