Djokovic claims: I received a permit to enter Australia

Novak Djokovic's storm continues


 In an appeal filed by the Serbian tennis player in an Australian court, where he has been held since Wednesday because he intended to enter the country without being vaccinated against Corona, he claims to have a document from the Australian Immigration Department authorizing him to enter the Australian Championships .

According to his lawyers, he holds a valid visa and a medical exemption from the tournament organizers, after he contracted the virus last month.

The Serb presented a document stating that he was found positive for Corona on December 16, so he received written permission to take off for the country after recovering.

There is a problem with Djokovic's claim, as the deadline for submitting a waiver request from the tournament organizing committee ended on December 10, six days before the date he claims to have received the positive response to the virus test.

The debate over the future of the world-ranked tennis player, who has been detained at Melbourne Airport for hours without his personal mobile phone in his possession and when he is closely guarded by two security personnel, is expected to continue until at least Monday, when it will be decided whether he is deported.

Until then, Djokovic will remain in solitary confinement in a hotel in the city and will not be deported back to Serbia.
