Cape Town - While he always hits the headlines for the wrong reasons, tennis bad boy Nick Kyrgios brought out a massive cheer from spectators in his semi-final clash against Stefanos Tsitsipas at the ATP Tour's Washington Open

After Tsitsipas had broken a shoelace and didn't have a spare pair of shoes in his kit bag, his coach in the crowd had to quickly provide a pair so the match could continue.

And it was Kyrgios who acted as the delivery service, quickly grabbing the shoes at the side of the court before bowing before Tsitsipas as he presented him with the new footwear and a massive grin.

Kyrgios went on to win the match 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (9/7)
