Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko played tennis with the world’s top female players and was defeated.

Lukashenko joined Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark and Victoria Azarenka from Belarus for a tennis match on Friday, Interfax reports. The charity match between the world’s number one and 10 women’s players, was held at the Minsk Palace of Sports.

The Belarusian president reportedly entered the court during the break, took the racket from Azarenka, and started playing with Wozniacki. Victoria, however, soon entered the game on Caroline’s side – and both women soon defeated the President of Belarus, who is well known for his love of sports.
