Anti-Vax Tennis Star Novak Djokovic Tests COVID+

Yahoo Sports reports:

Novak Djokovic has undergone COVID-19 testing after a Croatian charity tennis tournament he organized resulted in three positive cases, drawing backlash from the tennis world.

Djokovic, a vaccine skeptic, initially declined testing in Croatia after the tournament was canceled on Sunday before his media team announced Monday that he would undergo testing upon flying home to Serbia.

Djokovic said in April that he “is opposed to vaccination” and has criticized the “extreme” and “impossible” coronavirus safety measures planned for the US Open in the fall.

And the inevitable update:

Novak Djokovic, the men’s world No 1 tennis player, has tested positive for Covid-19, the Serbian said in a statement on Tuesday.

Croatia’s Borna Coric, Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria and Viktor Troicki have previously tested positive after playing in Djokovic’s Adria Tour exhibition tournament in the Balkan region.

In the statement, Djokovic said: “I am extremely sorry for each individual case of infection. I hope that it will not complicate anyone’s health situation and that everyone will be fine.”
