The world’s number one ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic was deported from Australia on Saturday and banned from entry for the next three years.
Djokovic has won nine of his 20 Grand Slam trophies at the Australian Open — including three in a row.
The Australian regime said his presence in the country could “stir up anti-vaccine sentiments” in their country.

SKY News reported:
Novak Djokovic will be deported from Australia and will not play in the Australian Open after losing his visa appeal to stay in the country.
Three Federal Court judges upheld a decision to cancel the unvaccinated tennis star’s visa on public interest grounds.
The Serb now looks set for a three-year ban from Australia, a move that will hinder his attempt to win 21 grand slams and become the greatest player of all time.
The 34-year-old said he was “extremely disappointed” by the decision.
