Novak Djokovic is to be kicked out of Australia after losing his visa case

Novak Djokovic has failed in his bid to stay in Australia and compete after judges threw out his appeal against his visa's cancellation.

Australian immigration minister Alex Hawke had re-cancelled the Serbian’s visa, meaning he would have to leave the country and miss out on the chance to win a record 21st grand slam.He appealed that decision in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia, where his lawyer Nick Wood argued there was no evidence his presence would stoke anti-vaccination sentiment.

As more than 80,000 people watched the session on YouTube, Mr Wood said the evidence that Djokovic opposes vaccination was lacking, and that Mr Hawke had not considered whether deporting him would lead to more anti-vaxx sentiment."Not a single line of evidence in the material provided any specific or logical foundation whatsoever that the mere presence of Mr Djokovic in Australia in itself may somehow foster anti-vaccination sentiment."

The men’s world number one, who has been in hotel detention, has been embroiled in a row over a vaccine exemption. Australian immigration minister Alex Hawke had re-cancelled the Serbian’s visa, meaning he would have to leave the country and miss out on the chance to win a record 21st grand slam. He appealed that decision in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia, where his lawyer Nick Wood argued there was no evidence his presence would stoke anti-vaccination sentiment. As more than 80,000 people watched the session on YouTube, Mr Wood said the evidence that Djokovic opposes vaccination was lacking, and that Mr Hawke had not considered whether deporting him would lead to more anti-vaxx sentiment. "Not a single line of evidence in the material provided any specific or logical foundation whatsoever that the mere presence of Mr Djokovic in Australia in itself may somehow foster anti-vaccination sentiment." Djokovic has clarified that he is not opposed to vaccination but he is against being forced to take one to travel to tournaments, and he kept an open mind on the subject. Mr Wood criticised Mr Hawke for not making reference to that clarification. He also said that deporting the tennis star could impact on public health and order, and pointed to police pepper spraying Djokovic’s supporters as they demonstrated for him in the street. To win the appeal, the nine-time Australian Open champion’s legal team would need to prove Mr Hawke acted irrationally or outside of his powers. Updates to follow
