They’re known for their witty banter and on Friday morning’s Today Show, Karl Stefanovic yet again took another cheeky swipe at his co-host Ally Langdon.

Nick Kyrgios appeared via video link on the show to discuss his abdominal injury, which saw him crash out of Wimbledon five days ago.

Allison Langdon pointed out that Nick, who is currently in the Bahamas training, had managed to escape many of the lockdowns that have occurred in Australi over the past few weeks.

“We're in lockdown. Not cool my friend,” Ally said, with Nick replying: “I mean I am training here. I am rehabbing”.

Nick’s screen then froze due to a technical glitch, however, Karl took that as an opportunity to take a friendly dig at Ally’s question.

“It’s Ally she’s in a mood today,” Karl said, adding: “Looks like he's really upset and left the call, has he?”

“He’s fed up, he’s had enough and I don’t blame him,” Karl said.

It wasn’t long before Nick returned to the Today screens after the technical issue was rectified.

“So during the break, I managed to call my man Nick Kyrgios who was sick and tired of dealing with the stuff on the Today Show with Ally,” Karl joked.

Nick laughed as Karl made the joke, with him and Karl gushing over how much they miss each other.

“Don't tell me you love Karl as much as he loves you?' Ally asked, with Nick responding: “I love him more.”

The interview comes as Nick has pulled out of the Tokyo Olympics, saying playing without spectators "doesn't feel right".

He said an abdominal injury was also a factor in withdrawing from the Games starting on July 23

"It's a decision I didn't take lightly," Kyrgios posted on Twitter on Friday.

Just hours before Kyrgios' statement, Olympic organisers banned all crowds from the Games amid Tokyo's ongoing state of emergency due to the coronavirus.

Kyrgios maintained it was his "dream" to compete at an Olympics.

"And I know I may never get that opportunity again," he wrote.

"But I also know myself. The thought of playing in front of empty stadiums just doesn't sit right with me. It never has."
