NOVAK DJOKOVIC: POSITIVE EMOTIONS CAN PURIFY POLLUTED WATER
Not content with his unorthodox views on vaccinations, Novak Djokovic has touted another myth to his legions of followers… that polluted water can be purified with a positive mindset.

Australian Open at risk due to COVID-19, says Tiley
The 17-time Grand Slam champion was speaking to Chervin Jafarieh as part of his series 'The Self Mastery Project' on Instagram Live where they discussed the health benefits of good emotions.
And in a passage which prompted scorn, Djokovic made false scientific claims to push his controversial beliefs.
"Because water reacts and scientists have proven that, that molecules in the water react to our emotions, to what is being said.
"I truly believe that we should continuously, every single day that when we sit, we sit without cameras, without phones … or even worse having nervous discussions and conflictual (sic) discussions at the table with your close ones during your meal."
It comes after Djokovic revealed he was against vaccination and would consider his future on the tennis tour if it was a stipulation to have one.
The coronavirus pandemic has forced a suspension of the ATP and WTA tours until at least the summer, while Tennis Australia chief Craig has said he is concerned the 2021 Australian Open could be cancelled.
