Novak Djokovic tests positive for coronavirus

World number one Novak Djokovic has become the latest tennis player to test positive for Covid-19.


It comes after Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki all revealed they had coronavirus after playing at Djokovic’s Adria Tour competition.


Djokovic, 33, played fellow Serb Troicki in the first event in Belgrade. Great Britain’s Andy Murray said the positive tests were a “lesson for us”, while Australian Nick Kyrgios called playing a “bone-headed decision”.


A statement on Djokovic’s website said: “Immediately upon his arrival in Belgrade Novak was tested along with all members of the family and the team with whom he was in Belgrade and Zadar. He is not showing any symptoms”.
