Controversial Australian Nick Kyrgios has withdrawn from the French Open through injury.

The fiery 23-year-old was seeded 21st at Roland Garros and was due to play fellow Australian Bernard Tomic in the first round.

However, Kyrgios has not played a singles match since April due an elbow injury and says he is not fit enough to return yet.

"Having consulted with my team and medical experts it is deemed too risky for me to step out and potentially play five sets on clay, especially as I have not played a singles match in nearly two months," he wrote on Twitter.

Sergio Ramos has wished Mohamed Salah a quick recovery from the shoulder injury which forced the Liverpool striker off the pitch just 30 minutes into the Champions League final.

Reds player of the year Salah left the field in tears in Kiev after damaging his shoulder following a tussle with Real Madrid captain Ramos.

Salah sustained the injury after Ramos kept hold of his arm as they fell to the floor, with some critics suggesting the Spain defender should have been punished for the incident.

It remains to be seen if the Egypt international will be able to feature in this summer's World Cup, but after his side won the match 3-1 to secure a 13th European title, Ramos hopes to see the 25-year-old back in action soon.

He wrote on his official Twitter account: "Sometimes football shows you its good side and others the bad. Above all we are fellow pros. Get well soon, Salah. The future awaits you."
