Former Australian legendary spinner and commentator Shane Warne wasn't much satisfied with the medical exemption that the Serbian Tennis star Novak Djokovic received, despite testing positive for the coronavirus.

Warne, who also belongs to the Victorian state, questioned the silence of the Victorian Government in Novak's case.

Warne took to his official Twitter and questioned the saga surrounding Djokovic. "Are these facts true? As I've read so many different reports in this messy embarrassing saga. Novak tested positive to COVID on Dec 16 & attended a public event on the 17th that inc children. Said he hadn't traveled in 14 days before arriving in Oz but traveled Jan 2 to Spain?" Warne tweeted

In the previous tweet, the former leg-spinner also questioned the reason for Djokovic's medical exemption.

"And did Novak have a medical exemption? If so – has the person who gave it to him been identified? What was that exemption? Just trying to get the facts as I'm embarrassed as a Victorian in this situation. Vic Govt are quiet? Can someone explain to us in plain Eng please," he tweeted.
