Tennis ace Rafael Nadal has crashed out of Wimbledon in just the first round.

The world number five and two times Wimbledon champ suffered a surprising defeat by Steve Darcis.

He was beaten in straight sets, 7-6 7-6 6-4, by Steve Darcis of Belgium - who is ranked 135 in the world.

Nadal, who won the French Open just two weeks ago, had never previously lost in the first round of a major tournament.
