Serbia euphoric as 100,000 fans welcome Novak home!

   World no.1 Novak Djokovic was greated by 100,000 people in front of the National Assembly of Serbia in Belgrade on Monday.
    Thousands of people lined up the streets as Novak, accompanied by his family and members of his professional team, drove from the airport in an open-top bus to the centre of the city, bringing traffic to a standstill and triggering ovations from citizens.
   People got out of their cars on the main motorway to salute Serbia's most popular athlete, whose entire family paraded alongside him on a giant stage where bands entertained the crowd.
" Nole, we love you ", " Nole the king ", the crowd chanted as Nole stepped on a stage holding a replica of the Wimbledon trophy.
" This is absolutely unbelievable and I owe all of you eternal gratitude for this reception, " an elated Djokovic said as he held the trophy he won with a fantastic four-set victory over Spaniard Rafael Nadal in Sunday's final.
" The time has come to bare all my emotions to you and all I can say is that you are the best in the world because only Serbian fans can throw a party like this. "
