Welp. This was uncomfortable.

A 21-year-old French tennis player was banned from the French Open after aggressively trying to kiss a reporter who was interviewing him after his first found loss.

Maxime Hamou, ranked 287th in the world, went back for seconds and thirds during an interview with reporter Maly Thomas, who did her best to squirm away from his sweaty death grip.

“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.”

Do less bro. Do significantly less.
