Lucas Pouille launches Higy - contactless hand sanitizer dispensers

French tennis star Lucas Pouille doesn't want to waste his time during the coronavirus pandemic as he has teamed up with his friend Maxime Rousseaux to launch contactless hand sanitizer dispensers. More than 1,000 Higy sanitizers have been manufactured and delivered -- a part of the profit will be donated.

"I'm learning and find it super interesting. I'm going to emerge from this crisis with new opportunities," Pouille told Le Parisien. "Sanitation rules are going to be very different and will last for a long time.

Each business, boutique or restaurant will have to provide hand sanitizer [to their staff and customers]."

The season has been suspended for two months because of the coronavirus outbreak and there won't be any tournaments on the Tour taking place until at least July 13.

Pouille, a former world No. 10, isn't too optimistic about seeing any tennis for the rest of 2020 as he thinks we will know the faith of the season by the end of June.
