Ball boy falls ill during John Isner match

A match is stopped at Wimbledon while a ball boy receives medical treatment after falling ill in hot conditions.

A ball boy had to receive medical attention after falling ill while working in soaring temperatures at Wimbledon this afternoon.

The youngster was part of the team looking after the balls during 17th seed John Isner's match against Matthew Ebden of Australia on Court 17.

Play had to be halted while the boy was checked over by paramedics and stretchered from the court, but the tournament's official Twitter account confirmed shortly after: "The ball boy from Court 17 has been been treated and is feeling much better. We wish him a speedy recovery."

123 people sought medical treatment during day two of the Grand Slam event because of the hot conditions.
