Novak Djokovic admits false information was provided on entry declaration form
Tennis star Novak Djokovic has acknowledged false information was provided on his Australian entry declaration form in a lengthy Instagram post.
The world number one’s place at the Australian Open remains up in the air and his case has not been helped by an admission he didn’t properly isolate when he knew he had COVID.
Mr Djokovic attended a photoshoot and interview in Serbia last month when he was COVID-positive but defended his actions by saying he “didn’t want to let the journalist down”.
“While I went home after the interview to isolate for the required period, on reflection, this was an error of judgement and I accept I should have rescheduled this commitment,” he wrote.
The admission contradicts his affidavit to Australia’s federal court which said he was diagnosed with the virus two days earlier on December 16.
