    Commenting on his sumo bout, Djokovic remarked that he should be ready to compete in this sport if he were to put on "a few more kilos."

    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.
