WATCH: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga's sound gesture after opponent Richard Gasquet is forced to retire at Wimbledon

What a gent.

Tennis fans around Wimbledon and beyond were thoroughly looking forward to the fourth round contest between super talents Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Richard Gasquet... only for the latter to retire with injury after just six games.

Trailing 4-2 in the opening set, the mercurial Frenchman Gasquet was forced to call it a day early after pulling up with an injury.

It was a sad sight, with Gasquet visibly upset at events, even raising a hand of apology to the sympathetic crowd in attendance.

However, his opponent and compatriot Tsonga, who progresses to the quarter-final to play home favourite Andy Murray, was on hand to lend Gasquet some help, carrying the bags of his distressed peer.

This is nice to see.
