Australia court rules Novak Djokovic to be deported

Tennis star Novak Djokovic has lost his chance to defend his Australian Open title as an Australian court upheld a government deportation order on Sunday.
Djokovic was scheduled to play his first-round Australian Open match on Monday night on a Day 1 programme announced while he was still in legal limbo.
The Australian government on Friday canceled Djokovic’s visa because of issues surrounding his stance against COVID-19 vaccination. That was four days after the Serbian star had an earlier decision to cancel his visa overturned by a court on procedural grounds.
