Novak Djokovic will be allowed to defend his title at Wimbledon, despite not being vaccinated against Covid, because the shots are not required to enter Britain, All England Club chief executive Sally Bolton said.

Djokovic, a 34-year-old Serb who is ranked No. 1, missed the Australian Open in January after being deported from that country because he was not vaccinated against the illness caused by the coronavirus that has led to the deaths of millions during the pandemic that began in 2020.

During the annual spring briefing ahead of Wimbledon, which starts on June 27, Bolton said that whilst, of course, it is encouraged that all players get vaccinated, It will not be a condition of entry to compete at the grasscourt Grand Slam tournament this year.
