Novak Djokovic tests positive for coronavirus

World number one tennis player Novak Djokovic has tested positive for coronavirus after hosting a controversial tournament in the Balkans.

Both Djokovic and his wife have tested positive to the virus, along with players Borna Coric, Grigor Dimitrov and Viktor Troicki.

The players all competed in Djokovic’s Adria Tour exhibition tournament.

“I am extremely sorry for each individual case of infection,” Djokovic said.

Australia’s Nick Kyrgios has criticised the world number one for hosting an event with no social distancing measures in place.

Tennis expert Craig Gabriel told Ben Fordham other players could push for repercussions.

“There seems to be a bit of a start now from some players that feel that he should be stepping down as head of the men’s player council because this is just not a good look.”
