The controversial 27-year-old Aussie wore a white cap during the match but swapped it for a red one following the final point.

Kyrgios previously came under fire for breaking Wimbledon’s strict all-white dress code by wearing red shoes and a red cap earlier in the week.

He was involved in a heated exchange with a reporter during a press conference after being quizzed on his choice of clothing.

But Kyrgios once again chose to wear a red cap as he walked up to collect his runners-up trophy this afternoon.

When quizzed previously about his decision to break Wimbledon protocol, Kyrgios said “I do what I want,” before adding
“No. I’m not above the rules” and “I just like wearing my Jordans.”

Today’s meeting with Djokovic was Kyrgios’ first appearance in a Grand Slam final.

The world No40 took the first set but was eventually outclassed by the Serbian tennis icon.

During the match Kyrgios hilariously urged the umpire to throw out a fan, accusing one woman of having had “700 drinks” in a stunning outburst.

He also continuously shouted at his team throughout the match while Djokovic remained ice-cool.

But after finally falling to defeat the big-serving Aussie took the devastating loss with good grace.

He said on Djokovic: “Yeah he is a bit of a god, I’m not going to lie. I thought I played well.

“First of all congratulations to Novak and your team, you’ve won this Championships that many times I don’t even know any more.

“Obviously to all the ball kids, the umpires, I know we have a tough relationship at times so thanks for putting up with it.

“And [thanks] to the crowd, it has been an amazing couple of weeks for me personally.”

Kyrgios remained well-humoured despite the heartbreak, and after being asked if his first Wimbledon final had made him hungry for more replied: “Absolutely not! I’m so tired honestly.

“Myself, my team, we’re all exhausted. We’ve played so much tennis.

“I’m really happy with this result and maybe one day I’ll be here again but I don’t know about that.”
