Russian tennis star Andrey Rublev writes ‘No War Please’ on camera lens after win in Dubai

Russian tennis player Andrey Rublev wrote the words "No War Please" on a camera lens after reaching the final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships on Thursday.

Sending a clear message to Vladimir Putin, the world No. 7 scribbled his on-court plea for the entire world to see.

While the letters initially appeared backwards as Rublev signed the camera, another shot soon revealed his powerful words.

The Russian star will face Jiri Vesely in the final of the Dubai Championships on Saturday.
