Marin Cilic became Wimbledon’s first Covid-19 casualty on Monday, forced out of the tournament with the virus.

Cilic, who had practiced last week with defending champion Novak Djokovic, was replaced in the draw by Nuno Borges.

“Hey guys, I am sad to share that I tested positive for COVID,” Cilic said.

“I have been self-isolating and was hopeful I would be ready but unfortunately I am still feeling unwell and unable to compete at my best.”
