A man ran to the square of the O2 Arena, in London, and burned his arm on this sixth-feira (23) to protest against the use of private jets in Grã-Bretanha, briefly interrupting the Laver Cup match between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Diego Schwartzman .
The security personnel moved quickly to drag or home to get out of the square before the game restarted after a quick check of the surface that was not damaged during the bizarre incident.
The British media reported that the protester was a member of the End UK Private Jets group, which claims that “carbon emissions in 2022 are genocide.”
Tsitsipas won the game 6-2 and 6-1 to give Time Europa a 2-0 lead over the Rest of the World in the competition, after Casper Ruud had defeated Jack Sock 6-4 5-7 10-7.
The Swiss great Roger Federer must enter the square at the end of the day for the final game of his career, as a 41-year-old player partnering with his great rival Rafa Nadal to face the American duo Sock and Frances Tiafoe.
