Confusion with Novak Djokovic
Before the sports emotions took over the fans of tennis, Novak Djoković made the headlines. After the Serb’s arrival in Australia, it turned out that he had a wrong visa and he was even threatened with deportation from the country. The tennis player ended up in a refugee hotel, soon after he was transferred from it, and in recent days he went out to the court and trained for the Australian Open. It is not known, however, whether he will eventually play on it, because the final decision on his possible deportation is to be made by the minister.
