‘Novak Djokovic allowed to enter Australia despite Covid+’

Melbourne, Jan 9 (UNI) Tennis star Novak Djokovic was given a vaccine exemption to enter Australia though he was tested Covid positive, the lawyers said.

In court documents released on Saturday, Djokovic’s lawyers argue the player had been granted a temporary visa by Tennis Australia because of his infection on December 16, according BBC reports.

On December 17, the tennis ace tweeted a picture of the ceremony where he was honoured with his own Serbian postal stamps.

He was sent to immigration detention when he landed in Melbourne. He was denied entry to Australia.

While waiting for final court’s decision, Djokovic’s lawyers have asked permission to move the Serbian from the immigration detention hotel, where he is currently being held, to a more suitable place of detention, BBC reported.

However, Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said Djokovic would remain at the Park Hotel until a final decision was made.

“We have managed to make sure gluten-free food is delivered to him, as well as exercising tools, a laptop and a SIM card so that he is able to be in contact with his family,” she added.
