Maxime Hamou has been thrown out of French Open on Tuesday after the Frenchman kissed a television journalist following his first round exit from the claycourt grand slam.

“The management of the tournament has decided to revoke Maxime Hamou’s accreditation following his reprehensible behaviour with a journalist yesterday,” the French Tennis Federation (FFT) said in statement.

The interview footage show Hamou pulling the female journalist close before kissing her on the side of the head. The reporter looked embarrassed and tried to push him away, but again he kissed her.

Hamou, ranked 287, after answering a question, kissed her again for the third time.

“We sincerely regret the incident that occurred during yesterday evening’s interview between Maly Thomas and Maxime Hamou,” Eurosport said in a statement to Reuters.

“The behaviour of the interviewee was highly inappropriate and we do not condone such conduct in any way.

“Maly is a highly respected journalist and we are pleased that a full apology is being offered.”

“Had it not been live, I would have punched him with a right,” Thomas was quoted as saying by The Huffington Post.

French Sports Minister Laura Flessel also blamed Hamou.

“No, a live aggression is nothing funny. Never allow it to happen, never trivialise such things,” she wrote on Twitter.
