A half-naked, masked man managed to get onto the court during the French Open this weekend, with a lighted flare igniting a small fire near the court.

Smoke filled the air until the flames were put out.

It was apparently a protestor calling for the resignation of the French president. The man, who was not immediately identified, was taken into police custody.
