Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Protester sets himself on fire at London tennis tournament (VIDEO)”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Fans watching Stefanos Tsitsipas’ match with rival Diego Schwartzman at the Laver Cup in London on Friday were stunned when a protester interrupted proceedings and sat down on the court, where he briefly set his right arm on fire. 

Nearby security personnel quickly jumped into action, with one using his jacket to extinguish most of the blaze and stamp out the remaining flames, some of which had begun to take hold on the court at the O2 Arena.

The protester was then swiftly removed from the court by security. He was wearing a T-shirt which read ’End UK private jets’.
