“I think that would be fitting as he went through HELL”: England cricket legend believes Novak Djokovic deserves an apology for his Covid-19 vaccination stance after recent report

England cricket legend Kevin Pietersen believes that world number one Novak Djokovic deserves an apology from everyone who criticised him for his point of view regarding Covid-19 vaccines.
The 36-year-old is often regarded as the greatest player in the history of men’s tennis in the Open era, having won as many as 24 Grand Slam titles.
Djokovic was the centre of controversy during the Covid-19 pandemic when he openly refused to be vaccinated, doubting the safety of the drugs as they were approved on an urgent basis to stop the pandemic which resulted in the loss of lives of millions of people.
It was this decision which led him to be deported from Australia as well where he travelled to participate in the Australian Open.
Recently, the Telegraph reported that one of the most successful vaccines which came from AstraZeneca in the UK is now being withdrawn after admission that it resulted in rare blood clot issues which can become fatal.
Pietersen, in a post on his official account on the social media platform X—previously known as Twitter—stated that Djokovic deserves an apology from the Australian government as he has been proven right. But the former right-handed batter deleted the post later on.

Novak Djokovic faced a lot of criticism for his position regarding Covid-19 vaccination. 
“It’s time for every single person (who criticised) and the Australian government to issue an apology to Novak Djokovic now,” wrote Pietersen. “I think that would be fitting as he went through HELL! It seems he was onto something…”
Djokovic, recently in an interview, stated that he had no regrets of going through a difficult phase for having a strong opinion about something.
“I have no regrets,” he said.. “I’ve learned through life that regrets only hold you back and basically make you live in the past.
I don’t want to do that. I also don’t want to live too much in the future. I want to be as much as in the present moment but of course think about the future, create a better future.
“At the same time, it’s the conscious decision I made and I knew that there is always a possibility that I won’t go to America.”
