Nick Kyrgios’ mother has been allegedly held at gunpoint by masked man before her son’s luxury green Tesla was stolen, a court has heard.

Extraordinary details have emerged of how the Aussie tennis star helped cops track down the man accused of stealing the car, which is valued at about $191,000.

According to ACT Police, a 32-year-old Canberra man wearing dark clothing threatened Norlalia Kygrios with a long-barrel gun and demanded she hand over the keys to her son’s car at about 8.30am on Monday.

The man allegedly asked her to demonstrate how to drive the vehicle, before getting behind the wheel.

Kyrgios was reportedly able to track his car and slow it down via an app on his mobile phone.

Police said they engaged in a “short pursuit” with the man, which was abandoned due to safety concerns for other road users.

The man was caught after police cordoned off a street in Ainslie, and he was arrested at about 9.05am.

The man faced the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning where he was charged with five offences, including aggravated robbery.

He was denied bail to return to court at a later date.
