Australia Covid-19 - Border officials cancel top tennis star Novak Djokovic's visa.

TENNIS pro Novak Djokovic will remain in a quarantine hotel until at least Monday after his Australian visa was dramatically revoked – and he could be deported in DAYS.

The world No 1 has been trapped in the Melbourne hotel after being held at the city’s airport for nine hours.

Serbian Djokovic, 34, sparked a major backlash after he was granted a vaccine exemption to play in the contest.

He has not openly spoken about his vaccination status, but last year did admit that he was “opposed” to vaccination.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner announced that he was travelling to Australia with an “exemption permission” on January 4.

But Australia's Border Force confirmed Djokovic's visa had been revoked after he landed to take part in the Australian Open at around 11.15pm local time yesterday.

Djokovic's injunction request against the visa cancellation was listed for hearing later today in the Federal Circuit and Family Court.

But a judge adjourned proceedings until 10am on Monday, meaning Djokovic faces an uncertain weekend in hotel quarantine.
