US Open Champion Sloane Stephens Freaks Out Over Bug In Hilarious Video

Sloane Stephens may be a US Open Champion but it's her reaction to a bug that has the Internet amused

24-year-old Sloane Stephens is the new US Open champion but did you know she's also terrified of bugs? A video captures the American tennis player's hilariously relatable reaction to a flying insect. The short clip, tweeted by Ms Stephens last week, shows her animated reaction to the bug and the Internet can't help but relate. 

Ms Stephens was speaking to the press after her US Open quarter-final victory on Tuesday when she was interrupted by a bug that began flying near her. 

"Oh my God!" the tennis star exclaimed loudly as she moved one way and then the other in an attempt to steer clear of what we can only presume is a rather large fly or bee. 

In the background, a few members of the press giggled as Ms Stephens appeared to jump out of her chair.

"What is that thing...it looks like a dragon," she said. "That is so disgusting."

Ms Stephens carefully returned to her seat only for the pest to reappear. At someone's suggestion, she slipped off her sparkling white tennis shoe and attempted to swat it away. 

"Okay, that was so disgusting. Wow. Sorry. What was the question?" Ms Stephens asked, trying to focus on the press conference again. 

The tennis player tweeted a short clip of the incident on September 6, writing "Ooops!"

The video had the Internet laughing out loud and prompted many to share videos and GIFs of similar instances:
     
And, of course, there was even a Game of Thrones reference thrown in:
 
Sloane Stephens, Mother of Dragons? Not quite, if this video is anything to go by!
