Novak Djokovic said it is time for people to “help our Mother Earth” during the coronavirus pandemic as “we can’t be healthy if our world isn’t healthy”.
COVID-19 has claimed more than 13,000 lives and the figure continues to escalate as the virus sweeps across the globe.
Countries are in lockdown and world number one Djokovic has stressed that is it vital to stay at home and unite with the world in crisis.
He posted on Twitter: “I am all about being productive and proactive but in harmony with peace and innerstanding (sic) of our true essence. We can’t be healthy if our world isn’t healthy.
“This is the time for all of us to get together and unite. Let’s really try to spend quality time with family at home, enjoy the little things in life.
“Let’s try to laugh, love and dedicate time to inner work. Pray, meditate, eat healthy, sing, dance, read, write, workout, sleep well, train our brains to think good thoughts… This is a great opportunity to do that.

“By being at home we will not only hopefully help to slow the spread of this virus, but we will also give ourselves a chance to truly address certain emotions and subconscious programs that have been suppressed and ignored.
“We need to dig deep now and regenerate on every level of our beings. Only like that will we be able to raise our own vibration and help our Mother Earth heal quickly. We are all ONE. We all live in the same world.
“Please treat people and nature like you would treat yourself. God bless you all. We will be stronger and more united, I am sure.”
