Famed plant-based tennis player Novak Djokovic defeated
player Kevin Anderson in today's Wimbledon finals - earning him his first Grand Slam
title since 2016.

The massive win has been described as a 'stunning career revival' for the long-time tennis champion.

The Serbian tennis pro - who already holds three Wimbledon
titles - is currently ranked number 21 of the world's best in men's singles by
the Association of Tennis Professionals.

Because of his outstanding performance, Djokovic has been
touted as one of the greatest tennis players 'in the history of tennis' - with NBC Sports going
so far is to dub him 'tennis' Muhammad Ali'.

Diet

Djokovic is a plant-based eater - although not vegan - and says
he gave up meat a number of years ago for 'ethical and health reasons'.

He also owns a vegan restaurant with his wife Jelena in
Monte Carlo, and is the author of a dietary guide, Serve To Win, which outlines
the meat, dairy, gluten, and egg-free diet he gives credit for his success.
