Britain’s Jodie Burrage rushed to help a ball boy who was taken unwell during her first-round defeat at Wimbledon.

Burrage raced over to the fridge for water and got an energy gel from her bag when he was struggling early in the second set, later handing him sweets while he sat on a chair.

The 23-year-old tennis player watched over him, talking to him for several minutes before medical assistance arrived.

The boy was helped off court 18, walking shakily, and the All England Club later said “he’s fine”.

Burrage said the youngster had told her he was feeling “really faint”.

She said she had tried to give him an energy gel but that they “are not the nicest thing to have”.
