TENNIS- Japanese player Naomi Osaka has laughed off comments by a Japanese comedy duo who said she was too sunburned and needed some bleach.

The comedy duo made the remarks at a live event on September 22, the same day Osaka won the Pan Pacific Open.

"'Too sunburned' lol that's wild," Osaka said on Twitter late on Sunday. "Little did they know, with Shiseido Anessa perfect UV sunscreen I never get sunburned."

Osaka was born to Haitian father and Japanese mother in Japan but was raised in United States.
