Novak Djokovic apologises and admits regret at breaking Covid rules – ‘I’m really sorry’ | Tennis | Sport


Novak Djokovic has apologised for breaking Covid rules by attending an interview despite knowing he was positive for the virus. Djokovic was interviewed by L’Equipe on December 18 and also took part in a photoshoot with the French newspaper.

Asked if he knew he was positive, Djokovic told the BBC: “Yes and that was a poor error of judgement that I wish I can bring back the time and not have done it.

“[I did it] for several reasons. First, because I respect L’Equipe as one of the best sports papers in the world.

“Franck [Ramella], the journalist, is somebody I have known for many, many years and always had a great relationship with him.

“We had already organised that meeting for quite some time and I didn’t want to let him down.

“Should I have been more cautious? Should I have advised him? Absolutely.

“I wish I could take it back, it was my mistake, I own it and I stand behind it and I’m really sorry for that.”
