A group of anti-gay marriage protesters (one of them a shirtless, flare-carrying masked man) stormed the French Open today, startling players Rafael Nadal and David Ferrer.
Security guards quickly grabbed the protester and dragged him to the locker rooms as a surprised Nadal looked on. The unidentified man was one of several shirtless men who donned masks to protest France’s same-sex marriage law, which went into effect several weeks ago.
Two other protesters were escorted off the grounds after they unfurled a banner reading, “Help! France tramples on the rights of children!”
Nadal won the match, securing his eigth French Open win.

Here's some rather dramatic video of yesterday's U.S. Open press conference at which Rafael Nadal, after experiencing a painful leg cramp, slid completely under the table.
The 25-year-old Spaniard would tell the Spanish reporters he has had cramping before, just never in public. He blamed the cramping on the heat Sunday and insisted he will practice today as normal. Before the incident, Nadal had seemed relaxed in discussing his match, which he had said was his best showing so far in the tournament.
Nadal had just defeated Argentine David Nalbandian in the third round.
