However, upon his arrival, it was confirmed he had tested positive for coronavirus, although he is not displaying symptoms of the virus.

“The moment we arrived in Belgrade we went to be tested,” Djokovic said in a statement.

“My result is positive just as is Jelena’s, while our children’s are negative.

“Everything we did in the past month, we did with a pure heart and sincere intentions. Our tournament meant to united and share a message of solidarity and compassion throughout the region.

“We organised the tournament at the moment when the virus has weakened, believing that the conditions for hosting the Tour had been met.

“Unfortunately, the virus is still present, and it is a new reality that we are still learning to cope and live with.

“I am extremely sorry for each individual case of infection. I hope that it will not complicate anyone’s health situation and that everyone will be fine.”
