In mourning, Laurent Luyat will leave the air

If he will be present this Wednesday to host Roland-Garros on the France Télévisions channels, Laurent Luyat will be absent until this weekend due to the death of his mother.

Laurent Luyat will be on the air this Wednesday to present Roland-Garros with a lighter program to say the least since Novak Djokovic’s withdrawal means that the public service will have to be content with the last two quarter-finals of the women’s draw. The star presenter of the France Télévisions sports department announced on Tuesday the death of his mother, paying her a vibrant tribute on social networks.

“We love our mother almost without knowing it, without feeling it, because it is natural like living; and we only realize the depth of the roots of this love at the moment of the final separation. he wrote, quoting Maupassant. Laurent Luyat did not show anything on the air, except a black shirt as a sign of mourning.

Cécile Grès to replace him

Laurent Luyat will nevertheless be absent from the air on Thursday and Friday, as he announced on X, formerly Twitter.
“How can I thank you for all your messages of support, it’s so moving. And it gives me the strength to be with you again this afternoon at Roland Garros before leaving for Grenoble on Thursday and Friday for reasons that you know. Many thanks again »he wrote.

In the absence of Laurent Luyat on the terrace of the Philippe-Chatrier court, it is once again Cécile Grès who should officiate alongside Justine Hénin, Patrick Mouratoglou or Mickael Llodra, the house consultants. She was already on the air last Thursday when the Grenoblois had to hand over in order to comply with the obligations linked to the Labor Code. The journalist cannot legally work more than six days in a row and therefore had to give up his chair to the presenter of Stage 2.
