Novak Djokovic throws and smashes racquet in Tokyo Olympics bronze medal match defeat

Novak Djokovic could not conceal his frustration as he fell to defeat by Pablo Carreno Busta in the men’s singles bronze-medal match at Tokyo 2020.

World No1 Djokovic was denied a shot at a Golden Slam as he was beaten by Alexander Zverev in the semi-finals on Friday before losing in the mixed doubles at the same stage.

And the Serb’s anger boiled over on Saturday as he threw a racket into the stands before smashing another during his 4-6 7-6(6) 3-6 defeat by Spain’s Carreno Busta – a result that saw bronze elude Djokovic.
