Novak Djokovic's family gives press conference after Australia court win – watch live

Guardian, 10 Jan 2022
Novak Djokovic was expected to join a press conference given by his family via video link after an Australian Federal court ordered the government to release the tennis star following his detainment for visa issues around his vaccination status.

Djokovic did not attend, but his mother, Dijana, said: “This is his biggest win in his career, it is bigger than any grand slam.” She also criticised the treatment of her son in a “so-called hotel” in Melbourne. Djordje Djokovic said his brother had gone immediately back to the tennis court to renew training as he pursues a 10th Australian Open title.

Australia's immigration minister, Alex Hawke, could still decide to use a personal power to cancel Djokovic’s visa again but this decision is not expected until Tuesday.
