A scene from today’s nail-biting Wimbledon quarter-finals match between Novak Djokovic and Jannik Sinner captured how JiDion showed his dedication towards Sinner during the match.

While fans weren’t expecting an appearance from the popular YouTuber in a Wimbledon match, JiDion was busy patting his chest out of joy when the camera turned towards him.

The Tennis legend, Djokovic, had a hard time returning a serve from Sinner at one moment in the match. As the crowd cheered for Sinner’s incredible skills, JiDion also displayed his feelings, but in a unique way. As a result, an officer from the security team was seen to have a talk with the popular creator, moments before the camera turned away from them.

Following the same, JiDion reportedly took to Instagram to report the situation to his fans via a live session. He mentioned how he’s a huge fan of tennis. In addition, he also made a shocking revelation about him receiving a lifetime ban from Wimbledon, following the situation.
