A press conference at the French Open has raised a few smiles after Alexander Zverev joked with a journalist about his Yorkshire accent.

The 21-year-old German, who's the tournament's second seed, was speaking after overcoming Serbia's Dusan Lajovic in a five-set second round duel.

After the match he was asked about his hopes at Roland Garros by Live Sports FM journalist Jonathan Pinfield who is from Bradford.

But he couldn't decipher the Yorkshireman's accent and a hilarious exchange ensued.
