Stefanos Tsitsipas calls on people to ‘show responsibility’ in new Greek government ad


As the second wave of COVID-19 comes to Greece, tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas urges people to be more responsible in order to be better protected from the virus.

Featuring in a new advertisement for the Greek government, Tsitsipas reminded Greeks and tourists that none of their steps can afford to be “carefree” this summer.

“Those we love may be more vulnerable than we are to the coronavirus. That is why we should embraced the protection measures. So that we can soon embrace those we love again, as before,” Tsitsipas says.

The Greek World No. 6 has previously claimed that a yearly lockdown is “good for the planet”, saying he feels comfortable during the enforced competitive hiatus.

“I actually think they should put us in lockdown once a year – it’s good for nature, it’s good for our planet. I actually think it will be environmentally very beneficial. Life is such a hustle, and you never get the time to spend with your family and connect with them. Now it’s an opportunity to do so,” Tsitsipas said.
