A section of supporters chanted “Serbia, Russia, Serbia, Russia” on the steps of the main show court here in Melbourne, while an image of Putin’s face on top of the Russian flag was flown by one fan amid the celebrations following Novak Djokovic’s victory over Russia’s Andrey Rublev.

I'm not sure if "following Novak Djokovic’s victory over Russia’s Andrey Rublev" adjectivally modifies only "the celebrations".

    It seems to me that the "following" in post #1 is different from the "following" in "He took charge of the family business following his father's death".
    "following" does not mean "that followed".
    I'd like to know your take on that.
