Tennis star Novak Djokovic won his 9th Australian Open on Sunday, for his 18th Grand Slam victory.
Despite battling a muscle injury, the Serbian superstar defeated Daniil Medvedev in three straight sets in the final.
With 309 straight weeks as world number one, he's set to tie Roger Federer's record of 310 weeks, and shatter the record in March.
Djokovic battled COVID-19 after he tested positive last June, following a controversial mini-tournament he hosted in his home country.
