Nick Kyrgios preparations for the 2019 season suffered a minor jolt after he was bitten by a spider that saw him spend a few hours of Christmas at a hospital.

“Got a spider bite on my foot,” he revealed to his legions of followers on Instagram, jokingly adding: “Christmas different every year.”

Kyrgios ended his season early after an elbow injury recurred during the Kremlin Cup in October, forcing his withdrawal in the second round of the tournament.

“I’m going to choose to wrap up my season, head home and start the recovery,” the Australian had said. “See you all in 2019.”

Kyrgios, a former world No. 13, is scheduled to defend his Brisbane International title, which gets under way on December 31.

He will then compete at the Australian Open.
