PARIS, May 30, 2017

Roland-Garros tournament organisers took the decision to revoke Maxime Hamou’s accreditation following his inappropriate behaviour towards a female journalist on Monday.

The French qualifier, who lost in the opening round against Pablo Cuevas in three sets, kissed Eurosport journalist Maly Thomas while holding her around her neck and shoulders, despite her efforts to duck away.

The FFT President has asked the disputes committee to investigate for improper conduct.
