Djokovic leak controversy

Investors could be reacting to news that Ai-Media is investigating whether a staffer leaked a private conversation between Seven Network Holdings Ltd (ASX: SVW) newsreaders about the World No. 1-ranked tennis star, Novak Djokovic, The Australian has reported.

Ai-Media and Seven held high-level discussions about the matter on Wednesday night, the publication said.

In the footage, which has been going viral on social media, newsreader Rebecca Maddern comments:

Whatever way you look at it Novak Djokovic is a lying, sneaky… it’s unfortunate that everybody else stuffed up around him. To go out when you know you are COVID-19 positive…

Djokovic has been dominating the news in recent days after his controversial entry into Australia to play in the Australian Open.
