Novak Djokovic says he has tested positive for coronavirus.

The world No 1 was the face behind the Adria Tour, a series of exhibition events that started in the Serbian capital and then moved to Zadar, Croatia, last weekend.

He left Croatia after the final was cancelled and was tested in Belgrade, with that test now returning a positive result.

Grigor Dimitrov also tested positive for the virus, while Borna Coric – who played the Bulgarian on Saturday in Zadar – later confirmed that he too has tested positive.

Viktor Troicki and his pregnant wife have also returned positive test results after he played in the series.

The second event of a series of tournaments was held in Croatia, which eased lockdown rules and meant players did not have to socially distance with players hugging at the net, playing basketball, posing for pictures and attending press conferences together.

Several players have been outspoken in their criticism of the events, with Nick Kyrgios calling it a “boneheaded decision” to play and Dan Evans saying: “I think it’s a poor example to set even if the guidelines in that country are not two metres, it’s not a joke, is it?

“Even if the guidelines were taken away in this country to normal I will still be trying to keep myself out the way as much as I could from other people.”
