Watch: Old Man Acts Complete Dick, Robs Towel From Young Fan At Wimbledon

Watch: Old Man Acts Complete Dick, Robs Towel From Young Fan At Wimbledon

American Jack Sock beat Chilean Christian Garin in their first round match at Wimbledon on Tuesday.

Just after acknowledging the crowd following his three-set victory, Sock threw one of his towels to a young fan sitting nearby in the crowd. He had appeared to ask the world number 18 for the towel just prior to it being thrown in his direction.

Despite it likely being ringing with sweat, the kid was not the only one who wanted a memento of the game. A much older fan, sitting directly in front of his younger counterpart, ripped the towel from his grasp.

The world number 18, who appeared not to notice what had happened at the time, subsequently discovered the fate of the towel.

In the end, it will probably work out better for the young fan: He'll get a clean Wimbledon towel and he's been offered towels by both the US Open and Australian Open.

He's just a French Open towel away from the towel Grand Slam.
