Novak Djokovic’s father, Srdan Djokovic, was filmed posing with a Russian flag that had Vladimir Putin’s face on it outside the Rod Laver Arena on Wednesday night.

A YouTube video shows Srdan posing alongside the flag with a man holding a Russian flag with Putin’s face on it and wearing a t-shirt bearing the Z symbol.
