Kyrigos to face police questions over e-scooter ride 04:27 Tennis star Nick Kyrgios is facing a please-explain from police and potential fines for riding an electric

scooter while not wearing a helmet and with a passenger aboard, AAP reports. Just ahead of his first round Australian Open clash the world number 21 was photographed on
