Tennis icon Novak Djokovic and his companions are now a subject of enormous criticism from all across the world. The world no. 1 recently hosted a charity tournament name the ‘Adria Tour’ in the cities of of Belgrade and Zadar last weekend, which has backfired hugely. Although Djokovic’s coach Goran Ivanišević recently claimed that the event had clearance from the Serbian and Croatian government, lack of restrictions in the tournament has been the result of multiple COVID-19 cases. The host Djokovic and his wife, and three more players Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Ćorić and Viktor Troicki all have contracted the virus. Meanwhile, Twitter is filled up with savage reprimands towards the Serbian tennis star, as the witty hashtag ‘#Djokovid’ gets trending.
