At the Ballon d’Or awards, Novak Djokovic jokingly told IShowSpeed that he plays for AC Milan in a humorous moment.
Novak Djokovic, known for his unwavering prowess on the tennis court, revealed a different facet of his personality at the illustrious Ballon d’Or awards ceremony in Paris. In the midst of football’s biggest luminaries, Djokovic engaged in a lighthearted exchange with internet sensation IShowSpeed, adding a touch of humor to the event.
IShowSpeed, whose internet fame stems from his fervent admiration for Cristiano Ronaldo, was also in attendance. Prior to the official commencement of the ceremony, he live-streamed his encounters with this year’s Ballon d’Or nominees on YouTube. Among these interactions were chats with football notables like Erling Haaland, Bernardo Silva, Emiliano Martinez, and the 24-time Grand Slam champion, Novak Djokovic.
Their conversation began with IShowSpeed inquiring, “Hey bro, what’s your name? You look so familiar.” Djokovic responded in a playful manner, saying, “Hey man, what’s up? Good to see you!” When pressed for his name once more, Djokovic decided to embrace the playful side of the moment by humorously claiming to be a newly recruited star for AC Milan, even joking about an impending hat-trick performance.
On the red carpet, Djokovic took a moment to express his genuine love for football, acknowledging its status as the world’s most popular sport. He attributed this love to his upbringing, mentioning his early exposure to the game and his father’s history as a professional footballer.
While Djokovic’s sporting prowess is unquestionable on the tennis court, the question of whether he could replicate his success on the football pitch for AC Milan remains a subject of curiosity and intrigue.
