Grigor Dimitrov's epic display of sportsmanship at Brisbane International

At 4-4 in the third set, Edmund suffered a mid-rally injury to his ankle as he fell on the floor writing in pain.

While the crowd held their breath, fearing the 22-year-old Englishman had done some major damage, Dimitrov hurdled the net and ran to his opponent, eventually helping him hobble off court.

"In the last two games he wasn't at his best". (The jumping, not the sportsmanship.) Edmund would end up finishing the match, though Dimitrov prevailed 6-3, 6-7 (3), 6-4.

Dimitrov was in control against Edmund as he took the first set but was dragged into a second-set tiebreak which the Briton edged to set up the decider. It was very unfortunate what happened, for sure.

"The body feels good and the game feels good. I've seen this too many times and know the feeling so I really hope he gets better, that's the only thing", Dimitrov said court during the court-side interview.
