Pospisil’s sticky Cana­dian brew

The Citizen (KZN) - - Sport - Toronto

– Canada’s Vasek Pospisil found a pa­tri­otic way to re­fuel while com­pet­ing in Sun­day’s fi­nal at the Open Sud de France in Mont­pel­lier – he drank maple syrup straight from a bot­tle.

Pospisil, who was play­ing in his first ATP Tour fi­nal since 2014, was caught on cam­era swig­ging the sticky sub­stance from a glass bot­tle on a changeover dur­ing his 7-5 6-3 loss to French­man Gael Mon­fils.

World No 104 Pospisil even took to Twit­ter on Mon­day to ac­knowl­edge the very Cana­dian on-court mo­ment.

“Maple Syrup: Best Sports per­for­mance drink. Anti-can­cer­ous prop­er­ties. Rich in nu­tri­ents & min­er­als... Shock­ingly good in cof­fee. A great friend. You’re Wel­come, World,” Pospisil, 29, tweeted along with a video.

Canada is the world’s largest ex­porter of maple syrup prod­ucts. –
