Wimbledon was not the only place in the United Kingdom to be affected by "flying ant day", with the insects swarming across the country.

The grounds at the All England Club were swarming with fans at Wimbledon on Wednesday, but there was also something else buzzing about.

One of those players was Great Britain's own Johanna Konta, who joked after her 7-6 (4), 4-6, 10-8 victory over Donna Vekic that she may have even "swallowed some ants".

Although the flying ant period can last up to a few weeks, the insects usually begin their flight within a few days of each other to maximise their chances of meeting a mate. "It was in my nose and in my ear".

When the ants were too exhausted to continue flying, they crawled around the courts, causing unsightly black patches on Wimbledon's famous green grass.
