Andy Murray has faced criticism after swearing when a ball girl accidentally threw a ball at him during a match.
Murray was struck by the ball as he was sat down for a drink at a changeover during his Paris Masters match against Belgium’s David Goffin on Thursday.
Footage shows him holding his hands up in outrage as his water bottle is sent flying out of his grip by the ball, which had gone off course after being thrown by the girl.
After being struck, Murray looks up and says: “What the f***?”

The ball girl, called Lorenza, later apologised to Murray, a loved one posting a picture of her on twitter holding a sign saying: “Andy, so sorry.”
Murray tweeted back: “Adorable (laughing face) gave me a little fright but it woke me up (thumbs up) see you tomorrow lorenza.”
Some people were unimpressed by Murray’s reaction. Twitter user Deb @KI55andTELL wrote: “Yet another reason for you not to like Murray.”
