“Makes you look like a Putin stooge,” Nigel Farage trolled heavily after he backs Wimbledon’s decision to allow Novak Djokovic to participate

People on Twitter heavily mocked the politician after he supported Wimbledon's decision.

Nigel Farage and Novak Djokovic

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.  However, Novak Djokovic will be allowed to defend his title at Wimbledon, despite not being vaccinated against COVID-19, because the shots are not required to enter Britain, All England Club chief executive Sally Bolton said Tuesday.

In view of this, many people congratulated Djokovic and supported Wimbledon’s decision. A former member of the European Parliament Nigel Farage is one of them. He congratulated the Serb via Twitter by saying, “Great to see that @DjokerNole is welcome at Wimbledon. It makes Australia look dreadful.”
