Novak Djokovic Upsets Fan After Breaking Covid-19 Rules

The world Tennis ATP number one rank player Novak Djokovic got himself in bad book on Monday by breaking Spain’s covid-19 rules.

The tennis superstar not only broke Spain’s social distancing rules on Monday to play tennis — he seems to give no qualm by posted video of himself doing it!

The 32-year-old posted footage hitting balls back and forth with another man on a clay court in Marbella, Spain.

Usually, not a problem … but Spain — which was hit hard by COVID-19 — has strict stay-at-home rules which specifically forbid tennis!

So, when Novak posted footage Monday showing a rally with another man, people were super upset!

“So happy to play on clay,” Djokovic wrote … “Well, just for a bit with my phone in the hands”, Djokovic said on his instagram.

Spain has said athletes are allowed to work out by themselves — but the back-and-forth exchange with another player appears to violate the policy.

Unclear if officials will take action against Novak.
