Novak Djokovic and his wife Jelena have tested positive for coronavirus after Djokovic came under fire for a party at a Serbian nightclub.
Three other players, Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki, had tested positive for coronavirus, leading to the cancellation of the Adria Tour, Djokovic’s charity tournament.
“The moment we arrived in Belgrade we went to be tested. My result is positive, just as Jelena’s, while the results of our children are negative,” Djokovic said in a statement, which added he’s asymptomatic. “Everything we did in the past month, we did with a pure heart and sincere intentions. Our tournament meant to unite and share a message of solidarity and compassion throughout the region.”
Dimitrov’s coach, Chris Gro, and Djokovic’s fitness coach, Marko Paniki, had also previously tested positive for coronavirus.
Djokovic, 33, said he organized the tournament when he thought the virus had weakened.
“Unfortunately, this virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with,” Djokovi said.
