Novak Djokovic lands in Serbia to a hero’s welcome following deportation from Australia

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Novak Djokovic lands in Serbia to a hero’s welcome following deportation from Australia” – below is their description.

Novak Djokovic arrived home in Serbia on Monday after Australia deported the world men’s tennis No. 1 for not having a Covid-19 vaccine, a stance jeopardising his quest for a record 21st Grand Slam title.

“You are our champion, Novak!” chanted supporters, some waving national flags, outside Belgrade airport.

The 34-year-old had won nine past Australia Opens and is level with Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer on 20 titles.

But instead of beginning his quest for another Melbourne Park major, he took planes to Dubai then Belgrade after being twice detained in a hotel with asylum-seekers then unceremoniously booted out by Australian immigration.
