It has been months that the ATP World Rank No. 1, Novak Djokovic has challenged the pandemic outbreak. But unfortunately, the sports star couldn’t keep up to his dare as he and his wife tested positive for COVID-19 recently. And that posed a major altercation in his views subjecting him to a 14-day quarantine led by social distancing above everything.
But what exactly did he do to flout the curbs imposed against the spread of the contagion? Here is all you can have a look at-
- If you consider the weighted impact of his challenging mindset, just know that Djokovic organized a full-fledged tennis tour between Croatia and Serbia amidst the pandemic. He even dared to shake hands and hug everyone whom he felt like doing so! Not only that, in the first half of his trip, Djokovic freely gave interviews and signed autographs for his fans going maskless. Although indomitable the outlook ultimately succumbed to the virus. That’s how his luck went tragic while maintaining a track of his past activities.
- He couldn’t just go against his wish to dance bare-chested and sing ‘Bella Ciao’in a Belgrade nightclub all amidst the global crisis with his fellow players. And the result is quite evident as Djokovic tested positive with the coronavirus just days after the party. Yes, that severe has been its outcome.
- Just before the inauguration of Adria Tour, Djokovic held matches of football and basketball who celebrated his goals by removing his shirt. Well, it goes back to the time when the NBA couldn’t think of resuming the season while the Premier League failed to put a stop to the spiking number of coronavirus cases despite taking all necessary measures since they went back on the field.
- In the last month, the Serb who hails from the coastal city of Marbella in Spain simply ignored the standard operating protocols for athletes as regulated by Spain’s tennis federation and practiced on the court with a second individual. However, he clearly negated the authorities’ message to the athletes that states “exercise physically outdoors, alone or accompanied by a coach during flexible hours, within the geographical limit of their province”.
- If you go by the celeb’s attitude, he was simply against the idea of taking a coronavirus vaccine. While engaged in conversation with other Serbian athletes in Facebook, Djokovic bragged about his own theories saying, “Personally I am opposed to vaccination and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel.”
Unprecedentedly, his stout theories couldn’t triumph science in the final game.
