Protester runs onto court with flare during French Open Final

The Final of the French Open match between Rafa Nadal and David Ferrer was interrupted after a protester with ‘Kids Rights’ written on his chest ran onto the court, past security, with a red flare. With Nadal serving for the second set, a half-naked man entered the court on Nadal’s end, flare in hand. The protester was immediately tackled by security but not before he caused a major scene.
