About this Video: Tennis star Novak Djokovic has had his visa to enter Australia dramatically revoked on his arrival in Melbourne.

The world number one was held in the city’s airport for several hours before border forces announced he had not met entry rules and would be deported.

He has reportedly now been taken to a government detention hotel pending his departure on an outbound flight.

The developments come amid a backlash over a vaccine exemption Djokovic said he got to play in the Australian Open.

Djokovic has not spoken about his vaccination status, but last year he said he was “opposed to vaccination”.

In a statement, the Australian Border Force said Djokovic “failed to provide appropriate evidence to meet the entry requirements to Australia, and his visa has been subsequently cancelled.
