A tennis fan that heckled Novak Djokovic to get vaccinated has tragically died, just hours after leaving the Australian Open.
Tributes have flown for Victorian public servant David Adamson, 36, who collapsed at his home from a heart attack just a few hours after the match, just two days after taking his 8th booster. Adamson died after waiting three hours for Ambulance Victoria to arrive at his house in Fitzroy.
‘He was a real pillar of the community during COVID hiding under his bed waiting for Daniel Andrews to tell him it’s safe to come out. He was so vigilant wearing a mask everywhere, even when riding his moped to work, he’d triple mask for everyone else’s protection,” his wife Sandra announced in a teary Facebook post.
‘It’s really tragic he was taken from us so soon but I’m glad he got vaccinated eight times or it could have been worse.’
Victorian Premier Jacinta Allan has announced that all attendees at the Australian Open will wear masks in solidarity as well as an honorary vaccination ceremony during the Welcome to Country in David’s remembrance before the men’s final.
