The men’s tennis world champion, Novak Djokovic, has expressed his opposition to vaccination.
According to him, he is an anti-vaxxer.
That, he stated, is likely to stand in his way of returning to competitive tennis once the game restarts after the coronavirus pandemic.
According to him, “I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine.”
He says if vaccination were made compulsory he would have to make a decision, apparently stop playing competitive tennis.
Contributing to a live Facebook discussion with several fellow Serbian athletes, Djokovic said: “Personally I am opposed to vaccination and I wouldn’t want to be forced by someone to take a vaccine in order to be able to travel.”
“But if it becomes compulsory, what will happen? I will have to make a decision.”
“I have my own thoughts about the matter and whether those thoughts will change at some point, I don’t know.”
