Novak Djokovic could be deported due to a visa dispute with Australia.


Novak Djokovic is on the verge of being deported because of a visa dispute with Australia.

Novak Djokovic, the world number one tennis player, was locked up in a quarantine hotel last night after his visa was revoked.

Over his Covid vaccination status, the world number one found himself in the middle of a political firestorm.

Depending on the outcome of his appeal, he could be sent home on Monday.

Djokovic, who has not said whether he has had a vaccine but has previously spoken out against them, was initially granted a visa to compete in the upcoming Australian Open in Melbourne.

However, after arriving on Wednesday, the tournament’s nine-time winner was detained for several hours at the airport before border officials announced he had not met entry requirements.

The Serbian star, 34, was then taken to a government detention facility, where he remained yesterday in preparation for a court deportation hearing on Monday.

The dispute revolves around an exemption the player claimed he received to compete in the Australian Open.

Many people have been outraged by the decision to let him into the country despite the fact that he may be unvaccinated.

Australians have been subjected to some of the most stringent Covid restrictions in the world.

“Mr. Djokovic’s visa has been revoked,” said Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

When it comes to our borders, rules are rules.

No one is exempt from the rules.”

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, on the other hand, claimed that Djokovic had been subjected to “harassment” and that “the entire country of Serbia” now backs him.

Srdjan, the player’s father, said his son was held in a police-guarded room at the airport.

“This isn’t just a fight for Novak; it’s a fight for the entire world,” he said.
