Nick Kyrgios slapped with $23,500 fine for imitating sex act on live television
Nick Kyrgios has been slapped with a $23,500 after being caught on camera simulating a sex act.
It’s the second time in two days the 23-year-old tennis player has come under fire, with the BBC also forced to issue an apology for his bad language during his win to secure a quarter-final place at Queen’s Club in London.
During his semi-final matchup against Croatian Marin Čilić, Kyrgios thought the action (see below) would be appropriate.

Big Guns Andrew Bolt and Graham Richardson tell Ben Fordham they’re disgusted by the sportsman’s behaviour.
Andrew says banning him from playing for Australia in the future would be a suitable punishment.
“One has to look back at past champions, John Newcombe, Rod Laver. Does anyone seriously believe that such men would have, on court, simulated a sex act on TV for heaven’s sake!
“This is just so barbaric.
“This bloke is too below par to represent this country. We have to have some standard.”
Richo agrees, telling Ben it’s “something seriously wrong”.
