Carlos Alcaraz and Alexander Zverev were forced to run for cover during their Indian Wells quarterfinal on Thursday after a swarm of bees invaded the court.

In remarkable scenes more reminiscent of a horror movie, thousands of bees descended on the main stadium in California, with the play immediately suspended.

An incredible photo shows the insects all over the ‘spider cam’ that glides across the court, with officials forced to raise the camera high above the stadium in a bid to take the bees with it.

TV coverage carried a message on the screen detailing that play had been suspended due to a ‘bee invasion’.

In one clip, aired on beIN Sports, Alcaraz can be seen running off court and attempting to swat the bees away from his head as they took over the match – which was just nine minutes old.

The quarterfinal match was one of the most highly-anticipated of the tournament so far, with world No. 2 Alcaraz taking on world No. 6 Zverev for a place in the last four.
