Novak Djokovic's father claims the tennis ace has been re-arrested just hours after winning his case against the Australian government for tearing up his visa because he is not vaccinated against Covid.
Srdan Djokovic, speaking to Serbian journalists, said that Australian police have re-arrested the tennis ace in an apparent bid to push ahead with deporting him under special powers held by the Immigration Minister.
While the athlete's exact whereabouts are unknown, TV cameras show a large number of police outside his lawyer's office in Melbourne along with a white van typically used to transport people to and from immigration detention hotels - where Djokovic has spent the last week.
It is just the latest dramatic twist in a tale that began Wednesday when Djokovic arrived in the country to compete in the Australian Open holding what he thought was a valid medical exemption to vaccination rules, stating that he had been infected with Covid last month.
