Abstract: We give a proof of the fact proven by L.D. Kay that the Kobayashi-Royden metric of a real ellipsoid (of dimension at least $2$) at $0$ is hermitian exactly when the ellipsoid is the ball. The proof given by us is much simpler and shorter than that of Kay although it is based on the same results.
