'Oh the tangled web’ Piers Morgan slams Djokovic as photo emerges a day after Covid test
Piers Morgan, 56, reacted to a photograph of Novak Djokovic surrounded by young tennis players which was shared the day after his lawyers claim he tested positive for Covid.The photograph was taken at an awards ceremony in Belgrade, Serbia, and Djokovic can be seen standing with young people who are holding tennis trophies.It is unclear when the event took place, but the photographs were shared by the Tennis Association of Serbia on December 17, as reported by Sky News.Djokovic’s lawyers say he had tested positive for Covid a day earlier.They are reportedly planning to use the test in question to validate Djokovic’s medical exemption which would enable him to enter Australia without being vaccinated.Upon hearing the news, Piers Morgan took to Twitter to jibe at the tennis champion.The journalist wrote: “‘Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive…”The quote comes from author Sir Walter Scott’s nineteenth century poem Marmion.Piers has previously praised Australia for denying Djokovic’s entry into the country.He told his 7.9 million followers: “The #Djokovic saga is not about whether you believe in Covid vaccines, but whether you believe famous sports stars should play by the same rules as everyone else.“He has the right not to be jabbed, and Australia has the right to chuck him out for making a dodgy visa application."The 20-time Grand Slam winner is still being held in a Melbourne detention centre after his visa was cancelled upon arrival into the country.He was told he didn't meet the country's entry requirements due to his vaccine status.Djokovic has not revealed whether he has been vaccinated or not, although he has been critical of mandated vaccines in the past.Court documents released on

This Morning presenter Eamonn Holmes has turned to a "mystical stick" to help him walk as he continues to get back to health following a tough year.The ITV host, 62, has recently shared that he's been having a "very difficult time" as he detailed his journey with chronic pain last year.In a new interview, Eamonn, who's recently moved to GB News to present his show alongside co-host Isabel Webster, told how a "mystical stick" has been helping him recover.Last year, Eamonn documented his battle against chronic pain after damaging his sciatic nerve.As a result, the husband of Ruth Langsford faced trouble walking, but has since revealed that he is determined to get up and about more in 2022.For part of his recovery, the ITV star divulged that he's had a special walking aid carved out especially for him.Eamonn explained: " [It's] not just any old stick – this is a hazel branch decorated with vines from the forest.“It’s a tribute to the tree spirits, the most powerful and wise of all spirits."The star went on to reveal that his stick contains protection provided by the "sleeping spirit".He said: "Hunters from ancient times would knock on trees before they entered the woods, to awaken the sleeping spirit for protection – and that’s where you get the sayings ‘knock on wood’ and ‘touch wood’.“Well, touch wood this gets me out and about more, and that leg of mine gets stronger and better," he continued to The Daily Star.Eamonn's admission comes days after he revealed that his sons are “embarrassed” by his walking issues.Speaking about his mobility problems, Eamonn said: "For months now I haven’t been able to walk, sometimes at all, and it has really taken its toll on everyone around me too.“I can’t bend down to pick things up so
