Molik, who won the 2005 Australian Open and the 2007 French Open in doubles, was about to respond to her interviewer when onlookers gasped in shock as a ball girl fell to the ground behind her.

The former Olympic bronze medallist was first on the scene, rolling the girl onto her side and reassuring her until paramedics rushed in to help. She is now believed to be recovering in hospital.
