Maxime Hamou, a French-born Muslim tennis player, has been banned from the French Open for sexually harassing a female television reporter live on the air.
EuroSport TV reporter Maly Thomas was conducting a post-match interview with Hamou, 21, when he repeatedly tried to kiss her and grope her. Thomas resisted his attempts while her male colleagues laughed at her.
At one point, Hamou put Thomas in a head lock when she tried to get away from him.
“If I hadn’t been live, I’d have punched him,” she said later.
Roland-Garros tournament organizers took swift action banning the tennis player from the French Open, which got underway on Sunday, May 21, at Roland-Garros Stadium in Paris, France.
The incident highlighted the controversy surrounding roaming Muslim migrant “rape gangs” who target young girls all over Europe.
900 Syrians were arrested in England and Wales for rape in 2016.
As many as 1 million girls have been raped all over Great Britain as critics blame the British police and media for covering up the crimes.
