Andy Murray and Jeremy Chardy were tightly locked at one-set all in their French Open fourth round tie when the action was disrupted by a handful of latecomers.

With the Frenchman preparing to serve, chair umpire Carlos Ramos was forced to repeatedly ask for order in Suzanne Lenglen as a group of standing spectators caused the crowd to boo.

Both players looked perplexed as the fans refused to sit down, with the bunch instead attempting to funnel into some faraway seats.

However, the hated few were eventually made to retreat by the umpire to a chorus of jeers.

Maybe just grab the closest seat next time, everyone…

Murray maintained his unbeaten run on clay in 2015 with a 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-2 win over Chardy.

The British number one will face Spain’s David Ferrer in the quarter-finals.

Win that, and Murray can look forward to a semi-final with either Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal.
