OKEKUNLE SUNDAY, IBADAN
Djokovic, along with Grigor Dimitrov, Borna Coric and Viktor Troicki, tested positive after playing in the Adria Tour, an exhibition tournament organised by the 17-time Grand Slam champion.
Nine days after returning a positive test, the world number one tennis player’s media team said on Thursday.
The second leg was held in Zadar from June 20 to June 21.
The players did not break any Serbian or Croatian government protocols, as neither country required the athletes to maintain any social distancing.
However, Djokovic, who was heavily criticised for staging the event, issued an apology, saying he was extremely sorry for the harm that had been caused.
They felt no symptoms of the virus and took the test after consultations with the doctors.
“They spent the past 10 days in self-isolation upon returning from Zadar in Croatia, having adhered to all COVID-19 protocols and safety measures,” the statement said
The tournament witnessed packed stands during the opening leg staged at Djokovic’s tennis complex in Belgrade from June 13 to June 14, with players hugging at the net, playing basketball, posing for pictures and attending press conferences together
