Novak Djokovic appeals deportation after Australia cancels visa
Novak Djokovic appeals deportation after Australia cancels visa

Tennis world number one Novak Djokovic fought against deportation from Australia on Thursday after the government revoked his visa for failing to meet Covid vaccine-entry requirements.

The vaccine-sceptic Serb was stopped by border officials on arrival to Australia late on Wednesday and denied entry into the country.

He is currently being held at an immigration detention facility in Melbourne and faces deportation.

Djokovic had flown into the city's Tullamarine Airport expecting to defend his Australian Open crown, and to bid for an unprecedented 21st Grand Slam title.
