Breaking News: World No.1, Novak Djokovic, Tests Positive For COVID-19

Novak Djokovic is the world’s best tennis player. Indeed, he is probably the best the game has ever seen.
Yet his credibility as the leader of the men’s tour is shot to pieces after the catastrophe of the Adria Tour where as at yesterday, four attendees had tested positive for Coronavirus.

The four people were Djokovic's personal trainer, a coach and two high profile players, Borna Coric and Grigor Dimitrov.

Despite the outbreak of the virus resulting from the controversial tour, Djokovic returned home without taking a test to confirm his status because he showed no symptoms.

Grigor Dimitrov positive test on Sunday night however led to emergency testing of players who participated in the tour in Croatia. Results released today reveal that Novak Djokovic tested positive for the Coronavirus.

The men's world number one tennis player confirmed the diagnosis in a statement.

In April, Djokovic had revealed he was an anti-vaxxer - and that it could get in the way of his return to competitive tennis once the sport resumes after the coronavirus pandemic.
