Sir Andy Murray had to cut short an embarrassing online chat with Nick Kyrgios – because the Australian player was so drunk.
Murray was left cringing as Kyrgios repeatedly told him he loved him and slagged off fellow players.
The tennis aces had arranged an Instagram Live chat to discuss their careers on Saturday.
However Kyrgios was clearly worse for wear when he logged on and was seen drinking a glass of red wine.
Murray, 33, kept covering his face in embarrassment as Kyrgios told him he was a better player than Novak Djokovic.
The 25-year-old Aussie said Serbian great Djokovic couldn’t return his serve and accused Austrian player Dominic Thiem of being boring.
After 15 minutes Murray brought an end to the conservation by saying “I’m done. I’m out, I’m out.”
During the chat, Murray told Kyrgios: “I had been warned about this. It was quite predictable.
“You promised to behave before we did the Instagram Live and it’s not really happened.
“There’s a lot of people watching this and most of the comments flying in are just asking whether or not you’re drunk which I think is pretty clear.”
Murray asked Kyrgios how many wines he had had and he said “six, about as many games as you gave me at Wimbledon”.
Kyrgios also kept calling Murray “handsome” and seemed to think he was English rather than Scottish.
He said: “Aussies and people from England, we are the same. Do you think me and Dominic Thiem would vibe? No.
“I’m more invested in maybe like a nice cocktail. But my boy Dominic Thiem would be like, ‘I want to see this paint dry’.”
He also said European players who take part in the annual team competition The Laver Cup had “no banter”, didn’t like each other and didn’t care about the tournament.
Murray, who turned 33 on Friday, said he has resumed training and thinks he will be injury-free when tennis returns.
