Tennis star could face jail time, government could RE-CANCEL visa, Australian Open at latest
Hello tennis fans
Andy Murray says Novak Djokovic still has “a few questions” to answer after his release from detention in Australia.
World number one Djok won a court battle that overturned his visa cancellation on Monday, a week before the start of the Australian Open.
The increasingly convoluted row centers on the Serbian star’s Covid-19 vaccine status.
But now Australian border officials are investigating whether his travel form included a false declaration.
British tennis hero Muzza said: “It’s positive that he is no longer in custody.
“There are still a few questions to be answered regarding isolation, and I’m sure we’ll hear from him in the coming days.”
And it all gets a little personal Down Under when it comes to Djok.
In leaked mic footage from two Australian TV news presenters, the world number one has come under fire for his off-field behavior amid accusations he lied on his travel forms.
7 news anchors Rebecca Maddern and Mike Amor made the comments during a commercial break and were unaware they were being filmed.
Maddern was heard saying, “Anyway you look at him, Novak Djokovic is a lying, sneaky asshole.”
Aussie Border Force officials are also expected to ask Djokovic more questions about his entry into Australia, with a focus on exactly where he was before he arrived.
The star said he had not traveled anywhere before arriving in Melbourne – but pictures have emerged showing him in Spain.
