Tennis superstar Serena Williams had a strange experience this week and provided the details in a video she posted online. ESPN reports that Williams, who is in Italy for the Italian Open, got sick after eating dogfood.
Williams is staying in a hotel with her pet Yorkshire terrier, Chip. She explains in the video, which she posted Wednesday on Snapchat, that she ordered gourmet food for Chip off the hotel’s room-service menu for dogs.
Williams said the salmon and rice dish delivered for Chip appeared good enough to eat, so she sampled a spoonful of it. She says on the video: “I ate a spoonful. Don’t judge me.”
Soon afterward, however, she began feeling sick.
“She says within two hours, she had to run to the bathroom. She recovered in time to beat fellow American Christina McHale 7-6 (7), 6-1 in the third round Thursday,” ESPN reports.
The dog appeared to enjoy the food and had no apparent repercussions.
