Tennis player Elliot Benchetrit has been left red-faced after he asked a ball girl at the Australian Open to peel a banana for him.

The world number 229 was sat courtside during a break in a qualifying game when the ball-girl presented him a banana.

The Frenchman then went on to ask the ball-girl to peel the banana for him, which upset the umpire John Blom.

Blom stepped in and told off Benchterit as he struggled to open the fruit with his teeth.

The Frenchman went on to qualify for the first round and was drawn against Japanese player Yuichi Sugita.
