World No. 1 Novak Djokovic arrived at the Italian Open on Saturday for a training session donning a bicycle helmet - a fitting joke after an unfortunate incident on Friday when a fan accidentally dropped a water bottle on his head as he was exiting the court.

Djokovic's Round of 64 win over Frenchman Corentin Moutet, also featured a brief delay when Moutet's cell phone rang from just off the court during the match.

Here's Djokovic's hysterical arrival to the stadium on Saturday.

It's good to see that Djokovic is taking things in stride following a frustrating Friday.

Djokovic continues his quest for a seventh Italian Open title with his Round of 32 match against Chilean Alejando Tabilo on Sunday.
