A protester set himself on fire while attempting to make a statement against private jets at The Laver Cup, hours before Roger Federer’s final match.
The Laver Cup match between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Diego Schwartzman was interrupted September 23, 2022 as a protester went on the court and set himself on fire.
The man was quickly dragged off the court unharmed and play resumed shortly thereafter. According to spectators, the man brought a flare onto London’s The 02 Arena and used it to set his arm on fire before security was able to put the fire out.
One staff member took his blazer off and put it over the fire before stomping on it.
