Novak Djokovic photo posing with gymnasts goes viral
Novak Djokovic is going viral after a photo taken of him backstage at the Olympics was shared on social media.
The Serbian tennis superstar poses with the Belgian gymnastics team.
Nina Derwael shared two images of herself and Djokovic doing doubles with the caption chú “When Djkokovic asks for a photo, you can’t refuse.”
His incredible flexibility went unnoticed as five-time Olympic gold medalist Nadia Comaneci tweeted the image and congratulated Djokovic on “great flexibility”.
Djokovic has cast doubt on whether he will participate because of strict Covid-19 protocols and lack of crowds, but the possibility of winning the Golden Slam – winning all four majors and the Olympics – is could not resist.
“There’s no key element of any sporting event, it’s the crowd, the fans, that energy, but it’s still the Olympic Games,” Djokovic said.
“I was a little awkward, but I decided to come, and I’m glad there’s so much good about the Olympic Games. So I will try to focus on those things.”
The 2008 favorite and bronze medalist is hoping to match Steffi Graf’s 1988 Golden Slam triumph after winning the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon this year. .
