"After receiving the news, we took all the measures stipulated by the Croatian government and everyone who has had any contact with Grigor will be tested", he said in a courtside interview.

With worldwide tennis suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Djokovic organised the Adria Tour as a charity event designated to be contested over four legs across the former Yugoslavia.

"Those who were in contact with Grigor will be tested". They have got up close and personal to play football and basketball, and celebrated the end of the first leg in Belgrade with some improvised limbo dancing in a nightclub.

The remaining legs were due to be played in Montenegro on 27 and 28 June and Bania Luka, Bosnia, on 3 and 4 July.

World No 1 Djokovic dismissed fears that it might prove a hotbed for COVID-19, which were raised due to fans being allowed to attend the events.
