A tennis match between Carlos Alcaraz and Alexander Zverev at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California was halted for over an hour due to a swarm of bees invading the court.

Former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates, watching from tournament owner Larry Ellison’s box, was among the spectators taking cover from the thousands of bees.

Alcaraz was stung on the forehead as he prepared to serve with the insects overwhelming the area.

Commentators called it a “bizarre suspension” as bees entered the crowd and covered a camera lens.

“There are thousands of them!” one Sky Sports commentator said.

“One of the more bizarre suspensions of play,” they said.

Officials were able to lead many bees away with the camera, resuming the match which Alcaraz won in straight sets.

While rare, danger has interrupted tennis before, including a snake at another Australian event and a cricket at this year’s Australian Open.

“I have never seen anything like it in my 39 years of tennis,” tennis legend Boris Becker wrote.
