Serbian tennis star Novak Djokovic and boxing champion Anthony Joshua bumped into each other in Dubai, where they two are separately enjoying the winter break.

Joshua later took to his official Instagram account to share a picture of himself with Djokovic. “A real humble brother, all the best next year,” he captioned the image to his 5.2 million followers.

Djokovic was scheduled to participate in the ongoing Mubadala World Tennis Championship in Abu Dhabi. But, he pulled out of the exhibition event after failing to recover from an elbow injury that forced him to end his 2017 season prematurely.

To add to his woes, the 12-time Grand Slam champion also withdrew from the ATP event in Qatar, scheduled to be held in the first week of January.

Meanwhile, Joshua, the current IBF, IBO and WBA heavyweight champion, is expected to fight against Joseph Parker in March.

A real humble brother, all the best next year ????????????
