As the title says, should I say:

He doesn't play football or tennis.

Or

He doesn't play football nor tennis.

Or "nor" only comes with "neither" ?

And will it be also be correct to say: "He doesn't play neither football nor tennis." ?

Neither of these are correct:

✘ He doesn't play football nor tennis.
✘ He doesn't play neither football nor tennis.


However, all of these are fine:

✔ He doesn't play football or tennis.
✔ He doesn't play football and he doesn't play tennis.
✔ He plays neither football nor tennis.
✔ He doesn't play football, nor does he play tennis.
