Sport: The world number one remained on his knees for about 30 seconds before being carried into the dressing room.

Just before that, he had beaten Corentin Moutet in straight sets in the Masters1000 tournament Internazionali d’Italia in Rome.

New photos show that a boy leaned over the railing. His bag was open and the bottle fell out and hit the top of Djokovic’s head.

– This is not treated as a deliberate act, but as an accident, says the organizer.

The organizer has stated that Djokovic was checked by doctors after the incident. So far, there have been no statements from the Djokovic camp.
