Djokovic has visa revoked, asked to leave Australia
Tennis star Novak Djokovic on Wednesday was asked to leave Australia, just hours after he was denied entry into the country due to an issue with his visa and vaccine requirements.
A member of the Serbian tennis player's team had reportedly requested a visa that does not apply to people who have been granted medical exemptions from vaccine requirements like Djokovic has. Though he has not publicly disclosed his vaccination status, Djokovic has previously expressed opposition to vaccines.
Djokovic travelled to Australia this week in order to play in the 2022 Australian Open grand slam.
