The BBC has been forced to make an awkward apology for a broadcast featuring old mate Nick Kyrgios, after catching him in what we’ll go ahead and call a fairly compromising position at the Queen’s Club Championships in London.

Cameras panned to the young Aussie in his players box moments before his semi-finals match against Croatia‘s Marin Cilic, and found him in a playful mood, joking around with an unseen person in the crowd and holding a water bottle in the vicinity of his crotch.

In tried and true tradition of pretending any phallic-shaped object is a big ol’ dick, he then proceeded to simulate wanking with the water bottle til it gushed forth a spray of liquid, and he took a cheeky sip with a smile. You can see the video below:

It was actually the second time this week that the BBC had issued a Nick Kyrgios-related apology, after the young gun swore several times toward the players box after missing a match point against rival Kyle Edmund several days ago.

He seemed fairly unfazed when a reporter later quizzed him on the incident. “I don’t care,” he said. “Do you swear? No, do you swear? Yes or no? Yes or no? Do you swear? Do you swear? Okay, great. Good question.”

Unfortunately for Kyrgios, he was knocked out of the Wimbledon warm-up event by Cilic, going down 7-6 7-6.
