After a ‘positive Covid test,’ Novak Djokovic was photographed at a children’s award ceremony.

On December 16, Novak Djokovic tested positive for Covid-19, but the next day he was photographed in Belgrade handing out awards and posing for photos with a group of young tennis players.

A day after testing positive for Covid-19 last month, Novak Djokovic allegedly attended a children’s award ceremony.

The divisive tennis star is currently holed up in a “hellhole” hotel in Melbourne after the Australian government rejected his vaccine exemption ahead of the Australian Open this month.

The World No. 1 has spoken out against vaccination mandates and has chosen to remain unvaccinated.

Australia has a strict zero-tolerance policy on vaccine uptake, and anyone who is unvaccinated without an appropriate exemption will not be allowed to enter the country.

According to Djokovic’s lawyers, he was granted a medical exemption after testing positive for the virus only a few weeks ago, but the exemption was later revoked by Australia’s border force.

The Serb was detained for nine hours at Melbourne Airport on January 4 and has been forced to isolate in a hotel ever since, with the government attempting to deport him.

His lawyers claim he tested positive for Covid-19 on December 16, but he wasn’t wearing a face mask when he shared photos from a children’s award ceremony on December 17.

The Belgrade tennis federation confirmed to France 24 that he was present on that date, handing over awards.

He was spotted at the Novak Tennis Centre in Belgrade, Serbia’s capital, handing out awards and posing for photos with a group of around 20 children.

It’s unclear whether he was aware that he had Covid at the time.

He allegedly also attended a special indoor ceremony at the Tennis Centre to receive a stamp made in his honor and in recognition of “all he has done for tennis and sports in general, for all achievements and generosity he is making every day throughout the planet.”

On December 17, the 34-year-old shared photos from the ceremony on Instagram.

Djokovic has reportedly had several requests turned down by the Australian Border Force since his arrest, and he is currently being held in a Melbourne hotel with “maggot-ridden food.”

One of the requests is for a personal chef.

Brinkwire Sport has reached out to Djokovic’s representatives in the hopes of receiving a response.
