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

Croatia’s Borna Coric, Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria and Viktor Troicki have recently been tested positive in the wake of playing in Djokovic’s Adria Tour presentation competition in the Balkan locale.

Djokovic uncovered that he and his wife, Jelena, had both tested positive for Covid-19 in the wake of stepping through an examination following coming back to Belgrade from Zadar in Croatia where the last of the competition was dropped following Dimitrov’s certain test.

In the statement, Djokovic stated: “I am incredibly upset for every individual instance of disease. I trust that it won’t confound anybody’s wellbeing circumstance and that everybody will be fine.”

While different players stayed in Zadar to be tried on Sunday night, Djokovic voyaged home from the competition to his home in Serbia before being tried for the infection, with Adria Tour coordinators saying this was on the grounds that he was not demonstrating indications.

In Tuesday’s announcement, Djokovic included: “The second we showed up in Belgrade we went to be tried. My outcome is sure, similarly as Jelena’s, while the consequences of our kids are negative.

“All that we did in the previous month, we did with an unadulterated heart and earnest goals. Our competition intended to join together and share a message of solidarity and sympathy all through the locale.

“We sorted out the competition exactly when the infection has debilitated, accepting that the conditions for facilitating the Tour had been met. Sadly, this infection is as yet present, and it is another reality that we are as yet figuring out how to adapt and live to.”
