Novak Djokovic has hit out at ‘misinformation’ over his COVID-19 test but admitted to going to a function after receiving a positive PCR result.
Djokovic has been accused of presenting awards to children at a tennis event in the Serbian capital Belgrade on December 17 a day after testing positive to the virus.
In an Instagram post on Wednesday, the 34-year-old claimed it wasn’t until after the event that he learned he was COVID-19 positive. Djokovic admitted he then conducted an in-person media interview knowing he was positive, a mistake he put down to an ‘error in judgement’.
The unvaccinated star’s account of how he found out he had the virus contradicts a report by a German news site that the Serbian returned a positive result on December 16. Der Spiegel claims when it entered the code for Djokovic’s December 16 test into the official Serbian health database at 1.19pm on Monday, the result came back negative. Mail
