Not just tennis in Paris where there is a gala evening for the Ballon d'Or award ceremony, where a very elegant Novak Djokovic was present. The Argentine champion Lionel Messi beat Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe' and triumphed for the eighth time in his career.
Djokovic talked about his relationship with soccer and many topics, such as the Olympics in Paris in 2024. "It's a privilege to be here among the best footballers in the world. My father was a professional footballer and until I was 9-10 years old I was undecided whether to play football or tennis.
I made a good choice I'd say! Who do I support? Red Star and AC Milan. I like all soccer players, it's important to have important stages like these here where you can bring positive messages. Paris Olympics? It won't be easy but I will represent my country and I hope to do my best to get this award.
Then it's nice to experience the Olympic village with all the best athletes from the nations in the world." For the occasion, Nole wore a very classy tuxedo, which you can admire in the photos below:
