Novak Djokovic’s disastrous Adria Tour project went from bad to worse today when the world number one himself announced he had tested positive for Coronavirus.

The 33 year-old Serbian, who has stated that he is an anti-vaxxer, said that he did not have symptoms but that he had become sixth direct participant in his exhibition series to catch the virus.

It comes after two events, in Belgrade and Zadar, where there was a near total lack of social distancing measures, with players repeatedly getting up close in everything from fun football kickabouts to escapades in nightclubs.
