British tennis player Jodie Burrage helps sick Wimbledon ball boy by giving him Percy Pigs and a sports drink


British tennis player Jodie Burrage came to the aid of a sick ball boy during her first round match at Wimbledon.

The youngster looked unsteady on his feet at the start of the second set and the 23-year-old Briton quickly went to help, offering an energy gel from his bag and a drink.

The crowd also lent a hand by passing him Percy Pig candy for a five-minute time limit.

The ball boy was then treated by paramedics and left in a wheelchair.

Burrage then lost the match to Lesia Tsurenko 6-2 6-3 on court 18.

The loss saw Burrage, whose impressive form in the run-up to Wimbledon saw her climb into the top 150, becoming the first Briton to lose at this year’s tournament.

It was a wet start to SW19 this morning with play stopped after just 40 minutes into the opening day.

British number one Cameron Norrie, starting proceedings on Court Two, had just won the first set 6-0 against Spaniard Pablo Andujar when the rain came.
