Denver Nuggets basketball star Nikola Jokic has tested positive for coronavirus in his native Serbia, just days after being pictured hugging his friend Novak Djokovic.
World No 1 tennis player Djokovic and his wife yesterday also tested positive, after the anti-vaxxer ignored social distancing by partying and playing football and basketball on his disastrous Adria Tour.
Jokic and Djokovic met in Belgrade on June 11 and were pictured hugging and sitting beside each other with no social distancing at a basketball event, although there is no evidence to suggest that either man gave the virus to the other.
Jokic’s positive test has delayed his return to America to join up with the Denver Nuggets ahead of the NBA restart, although ESPN claim he is expected to be cleared to travel back to the US within a week.
The NBA All-Star tested positive last week and is asymptomatic, but will need two negative tests within 24 hours in Serbia before he is able to travel.
