Novak Djokovic, the world’s No. 1 ranked men’s tennis player, has tested positive for COVID-19.
Djokovic was tested on Monday, and announced his and his wife’s positive tests in a statement on Tuesday.
Djokovic has been heavily criticized over the past several days for organizing a charity tennis tournament, the Adria Tour, in Croatia while the coronavirus is still surging around the world.
The Adria Tour operated with no masks and no social distancing requirements, and nearly 4,000 fans attended the Serbian leg of the tournament. Players were seen embracing after matches and going out for nights on the town, which were organized by Djokovic.
