Novak Djokovic’s lawsuit shows he tested positive for coronavirus on December 16 as he fights deportation | World news

Novak Djokovic, who is fighting deportation from Australia, tested positive for COVID-19 on December 16, according to court documents.

The world tennis number one was refused entry and his visa was canceled earlier this week.

Djokovic said in his court application that he had a valid visa and medical exemption from the organizer of the Australian Open.

Why is Djokovic being refused entry to Australia – and what are their travel rules?

He is currently embroiled in a dispute over whether he is exempt from the country’s COVID vaccination rules.

The request says he had a document from the Home Office confirming that he met the conditions to travel without quarantine.

Djokovic is spending a third day at a Melbourne hotel that has also turned into a detention center for immigrants – a few miles from the luxury hotels where most of the Australian Open players stay.
