An iguana caused a brief play interruption and commotion in the stands at the Miami Open

Tennis players are used to being interrupted on court by noises from the crowd, adverse weather or even their opponent’s antics.

The reason behind a brief stoppage at the Miami Open on Wednesday was a little more exotic.

Germany’s Tommy Haas was playing Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic when their first-round match was interrupted by an iguana, which suddenly appeared on the courtside scoreboard.
