What do you know about Australia?

MEN’S WORLD number one tennis player Novak Djokovic has had a tough week after being denied entry to Australia to play at the Australian Open.

In recent days, he has remained in a migrant detention center awaiting a hearing on whether or not he will be allowed to enter the country or be deported.

The story grabbed the headlines as Australia’s Conservative Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Djokovic failed to provide adequate proof of a medical exemption from vaccination that would allow him to enter the country.

“The rules are the rules and there are no special cases,” Morrison said.

The incident turned into a diplomatic row, with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić claiming that Djokovic was being mistreated by Australian authorities.
