A shirtless Rafael Nadal has been accosted by an amorous man asking him for a kiss at the US open in New York on Tuesday.

The 23 year old Spanish tennis star had just won a match against Gael Monfils and had taken off his shirt while preparing for an on-court interview when 23-year old Noam Aorta jumped from the stands onto the court.

The overeager fan then approached Nadal and put his arms around him, kissing him on the cheek.

Security personnel quickly apprehended the man who was later charged with interfering with a sporting event.

After the incident Nadal said, “For me it wasn’t a problem. The guy was really nice. He was a great fan. He said, ‘I love you,’ and he kiss me.”

Aorta could face up to a year in jail and a $5000 fine for trespassing.
