In Tennis, Novak Djokovic has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
The most known and greatest of all time, Novak Djokovic, together with his wife Jelena, has tested positive for the virus and is currently isolated.
He is the face behind Adria Tour, the event he helped organize in Serbia and Croatia this month. He has confirmed that he, his wife, and children tested after returning from the tour. He and his wife tested positive, but his children were negative.
In a statement on his website, he confirmed the news and has apologized to every individual who has been infected. ” I am extremely sorry for each case of infection. I hope that it will not complicate anyone’s health situation and that everyone will be fine, the moment we arrived from Belgrade, we went to be tested, my result is positive just as Jelena’s’. In contrast, the results of our children are negative,” he said.
“Everything we did in the last month, we did with a pure heart and sincere intentions. Our tournament meant to unite and share a message of solidarity and compassion throughout the region,” he added.
Djokovic is not the only player who has tested positive so far, and he is hoping things will ease down with time so that all activities can resume.
Football- ‘White Lives Matter Burnley’ issues.
After a match between Burnley and Manchester City on Monday, an airplane roamed above Etihad stadium displaying the world’s’ White Lives Matter Burnley.’ Suspects have been recognized, and investigations are ongoing.
Burnley’s defense Ben Mee spoke on behalf of the team and its staff, he had said they were all feeling ashamed and embarrassed after the incident, and they had nothing at all to do with it.
Burnley has also apologized to the Premier League, Manchester City, and all the people who are participating in the Black Lives Matter movement. The perpetrator who had come out to claim responsibility for the action has refused to apologize and has based his argument that three white people were murdered a few days ago, and no one seemed to pay attention to it.
His action is very disrespectful and offensive to the black community, but the police are still looking for reasons to rule his actions a crime. Are we indeed giving to much attention to the Black Lives Matter Initiative, or is Jake Hepple being a complete racist?
