Nick Kyrgios has retired hurt from his third round Wimbledon match with Canadian 16th seed Felix Auger-Alliassime.

The Greek Australian received treatment for an abdominal injury before retiring at 6-2, 1-6.

Kyrgios initially called the trainer towards the end of the opening set and had a medical time out while leading 4-1 but the treatment did little to help him.

Kyrgios had been at his radiating best early in the match and was overwhelming the Canadian but when the second set began Nick
could barely serve at over 110 miles per hour, he regularly clocks in at around 130 and again saw the trainer midway through the second set.

"I mean I could completely tear the f***ing s*** out of it," he was heard saying on the live broadcast.

At the end of the set he called the trainer again and during a brief chat said: "It keeps getting worse, I can't even roll my arm over, I can't serve anymore."

Kyrgios then walked to Auger-Alliassime and retired from the match.
