Novak Djokovic, the 25-year-old tennis star and world's No. 1 tennis player, had just defeated Italian Andreas Seppi at Australia's Perth Arena and headed to the sidelines to sign autographs when the barrier crashed and a group of young fans came tumbling down over his legs. According to Fox Sports, "Djokovic crouched on the ground in pain after the incident, before limping back to the players' lounge to receive treatment," though no real harm was done.
