According to reports, doctors checked him and found a bump on his head.

However, another video depicted that the tennis icon wasn't hit by a fan intentionally, however, the bottle was accidentally slipped from a fan's bag while he was bowing to capture an autograph signature by Djokovic.

The management of the tournament clariffied: "Novak Djokovic on leaving the Central court at the end of his match was accidentally hit on the head by a water bottle while signing autographs to spectators. He underwent appropriate medication and has already left the Foro Italico to return to his hotel; his condition is not a cause for concern."
