Famous tennis player Novak Djokovic has apparently tried his hand at a different kind of sports while visiting Japan to take part in the Japan Open, as a video featuring him engaged in sumo wrestling emerged on the Internet.
The footage, along with the photos shared by the tennis player, show Djokovic visiting Ryogkoku Edo-Noren where he faced a sumo wrestler much bigger than himself.
"It's a great experience. I felt that I am out of shape (for sumo) a little bit", Djokovic said as quoted by the Daily Star. "I think with a few more kilos, I'll be ready to compete. Probably three times as much as I have right now would be the right measurement for me to compete".
Many netizens also seemed amused by the spectacle, cracking jokes about Djokovic’s brief foray into the sumo world.
