A masked protester disrupted the Australian Open quarter-final tie on Monday between Cameron Norrie and Alexander Zverev by throwing ‘Free Palestine’ leaflets onto the court.
The protester’s pamphlets were quickly swept up by on-court officials but it was left to two fans seated near the protest to escort them out of the Margaret Court Arena.
The British No 1 was on serve in the third set, and preparing to win his game with advantage to make it 4-2.
But both Zverev and Norrie were forced to stop and wait for the protest – which took place behind the German number six seed – to be cleared up at the back out of the court.
