Before his long-awaited comeback on the tennis court, the 20-time Grand Slam winner was captured sharing moments with football icons Neymar and Verratti.

The Paris Saint-Germain duo have been enjoying some downtime in Monaco after their latest French Ligue 1 win, which saw Neymar score a hat-trick in a 6-1 victory over Clermont Foot.

In a video, which has gone viral on social media, Djokovic is seen playing keepy-ups with the football stars.

The Serbian, great with his hands, also proved he has lovely footwork as he tried to match Neymar and Veratti in playing keepy-ups with a giant tennis ball in the 'players area' at the Monte-Carlo event.

In as much Novak tried, he was not as good with his hands as with his feet as the ball eventually dropped at his feet, much to the delight of onlookers who were enraptured at the scene.
