Alexei Popyrin's Touching Tribute to Childhood Hero

Prior to their first round clash Alexei Popyrin had already spoken about how Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was his childhood hero and how the Frenchman's 2008 run to the Australian Open final made the him a big hero for the Australian.

On Tuesday, Tsonga had to retire against Popyrin when he was down two sets to one due to a back injury and the young Australian paid a touching tribute to his childhood hero during the on-court post-match interview.
