Mumbai (India) – Tennis player Nick Kyrgios once again showed his compassionate side on Monday, pledging to help hungry people and drop off at doorstep for those in need during the coronavirus pandemic.

Kyrgios, who placed on probation by the governing body of men’s tennis his on-court behaviour last year, emerged as Australia’s hero earlier in 2020 during the bushfire crisis.

His “bad boy” image transformed since his appeal to the tennis world kick-started a campaign.

The campaign raised millions of dollars for the victims of the crisis before and during the Australian Open Grand Slam in Melbourne.

“If ANYONE is not working/not getting an income and runs of food, or times are just tough … please don’t go to sleep with an empty stomach,” Kyrgios wrote on Instagram with a caption “real talk”.

“Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to send me a private message. I will be more than happy to share whatever I have.

“Even just for a box of noodles, a loaf of bread or milk. I will drop it off at your doorstep, no questions asked!”

The 24-year-old Australian is spending time in his hometown of Canberra with the sport suspended across the world till at least mid-July.

This situation is as a result of countries going into lockdown to contain the spread of the virus.
