Djokovic visa row: Novak ‘tortured’ and ‘humiliated’

Sky News published this video item, entitled “Djokovic visa row: Novak ‘tortured’ and ‘humiliated'” – below is their description.

Serb president Aleksandar Vucic said Novak Djokovic had been ‘humiliated’ by Australia at the end of a week-long visa row.

A federal court overnight backed the original decision by the Australian government to revoke the Serb star’s visa to play in the Australian open.

Australia demands all travellers be vaccinated to enter the country unless they have a medical exemption – Djokovic argued having COVID in the last six months was grounds for an exemption.
