Tennis player banned from French Open after forcibly kiss TV reporter

Tennis player Maxime Hamou world number 287, is put on a clinic for his “highly inappropriate” actions during a live post-match interview.

After his French Open loss to Pablo Cuevas, the 21-year-old was interviewed by journalist Maly Thomas. For some reason, while she was interviewing him, Hamou decided to kiss on the head. Thomas clearly wanted no part of that, even she tried to pull away from him.

That did not stop Hamou from going in for a second and even a third unwanted kiss.

 The reporter described the interview as “frankly unpleasant”.  “If it hadn’t been live on air, I would have punched him” – she said.

The France Open canceled Hamou’s accreditation and banished him from the grounds of Roland Garros. The French Tennis Federation called Hamou’s behavior “reprehensible.”

Hamou hasn’t make a public statement following the incident.
