Novak Djokovic’s visa cancelled, tennis player to be deported
Out faster than Englands second innings in Melbourne
> Immigration Minister Alex Hawke has used his ministerial powers to personally cancel Novak Djokovic’s visa, after the tennis star won a court case earlier this week against his previous cancellation.
> Mr Hawke said he cancelled the visa on “health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so”.
> The tennis star’s legal team has indicated they intend to file an injunction against the minister’s decision in a bid to allow him to stay and play in the Australian Open.
> More to come.
About bloody time!
This was perfectly planned – Announce it at 6pm local time on a Friday when most people have left work for the weekend.
