The final was set to be played at London’s O2 arena.

Djokovic, who now has a 14-match winning streak at the end-of-year tournament, proudly raised his trophy in front of the assembled crowd on Sunday, sending well wishes to Federer.

“We always give 100 per cent,” said Djokovic.

“I’m sure that if he could’ve played, he would’ve done.

So I wish him the best in his recovery.

“I’m not one of those players that celebrates these particular wins, but I have to reflect on the whole season,” he added.

“This trophy is definitely the crown for all the achievements that I had this year.

I owe the credit to my team, to all the people who supported me all the way through, and plenty of joy.

I’m very happy to be able to stand here and finish with this trophy.” It certainly has been a great year for Novak.

The tennis star will end the season ranked World No.
