Novak Djokovic, the famous tennis player with 24 Grand Slam wins, had a playful moment at the Ballon d’Or 2023 ceremony in Paris. He decided to have some fun with YouTuber and social media sensation IShowSpeed. This YouTuber is well-known for his admiration of Cristiano Ronaldo, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
During the event at the Theatre du Chatelet, IShowSpeed got the chance to meet Novak Djokovic but didn’t recognize the tennis star. He asked Djokovic for his name, and Djokovic, instead of revealing his true identity, decided to have a little fun. He told IShowSpeed that he was a new star for AC Milan, a popular football club. IShowSpeed was puzzled and asked, “Hey, what’s your name? You look so familiar.”
In a humorous response, Djokovic greeted him warmly, saying, “Hey, man, what’s up? Good to see you!” Djokovic went on to play along, claiming that he’s a new player for AC Milan, even though he hasn’t played for the club yet. He jokingly mentioned his plans to score a hat-trick in the next game.
