Novak Djokovic is back in rehab and training following a recent elbow procedure.

Djokovic put up a video of himself on social media doing arm exercises using a stretch rope, with his right arm in a light sleeve. He was not wearing hand strapping as in recent photos.

The Serb has confirmed having a "medical intervention" on the injured right elbow since his fourth-round retirement at the Australian Open. The long-running injury had previously kept him off the courts since Wimbledon, but the long break did not appear to have fixed the issue.

Djokovic said he would be sharing his "rehabilitation and progress,'' but did not specify his plans for returning to competition.

He is next scheduled to play the ATP Masters at Indian Wells.
