(Reuters) – Nick Kyrgios was defaulted from his second round Italian Open clash against Norway’s Casper Ruud on Thursday after the hot-headed Australian hurled a chair on to the court.

World number 36 Kyrgios, who was broken in the third set, threw his racket to the floor before kicking a water bottle and flinging a chair toward the center of the court.

Ruud was leading 6-3 6-7(5) 2-1 when Kyrgios was disqualified.
