The family of tennis superstar Novak Djokovic was targeted in a kidnap for ransom when his wife’s grandfather was abducted from his home in Ljig, Serbia, in the middle of the night.
Miloslav Radisavljevic, who is in his eighties, was rescued by local police who found him tied to a telegraph pole in a field. He was reportedly robbed before he was tied up, with his masked kidnappers taking his mobile phone and €220.
His abductors messaged Djokovic, demanding €2 million in ransom. Two people have been arrested.
