World number one Novak Djokovic remains a free man in Australia, despite the second cancellation of his visa on Friday.

The unvaccinated Serbian star is desperately fighting his deportation just days out from his scheduled Australian Open round one match on Monday.

Djokovic was given his marching orders on Friday afternoon by Immigration Minister Alex Hawke, who said it was in Australia’s “public interest” to cancel the tennis star’s visa.

But lawyers acting on Djokovic’s behalf quickly sought a hearing in the Federal Circuit Court on Friday night, appealing to Judge Anthony Kelly to seek an injunction to stop the immediate removal of the world number one from Australia.
