Novak Djokovic officially leaves Australia as Immigration Minister Alex Hawke releases fresh statement
The Metro says Novak Djokovic has officially left Australia following his visa cancellation saga, the country’s Immigration Minister has confirmed.
Today’s decision to deport the world No.1 tennis player ended a dramatic 11-day legal dispute over whether Djokovic would be able to play at the Australian Open.
Having seen his visa rejected upon arriving at Melbourne airport January 5 and then detained in an immigration hotel, the decision was then overturned on procedural grounds before Hawke cancelled his visa again on Friday.
