    Hi Maeve.

    A whinger maybe?

    Or you could say his complaint was because of sour grapes. :agrue:

    Or as Dandelion says 'he's a bad sport'.

    whiner, moaner or sourpuss could also be used meaning that he's just complaining over nothing.

    Or crybaby.

    Right, it's someone who can't take losing, has tantrums, fits, unable to cope with losing.
