Radek Stepanek licks contact lens, puts it back in eye

Monday May 23rd, 2016

Wanna see the grossest thing ever? No? Well, here’s the grossest thing ever.

During his French Open match against Andy Murray on Monday, Radek Stepanek’s contact lens became dry. So, he stuck it in his mouth and got some saliva on it so it would fit comfortably in his eye.

And, before you question him for this, he was up a set at the time. You’ve got to do what you can to stay in front of Andy Murray.

He took the second set before losing the third.
