Novak Djokovic wins court battle to stay in Australia

Tennis star Novak Djokovic has won a court battle challenging the cancellation of his Australian visa, in a case that has drawn global attention

Djokovic’s lawyers argued the cancellation was unreasonable – the government conceded this, and judge Anthony Kelly also agreed

The judge ordered for the immediate release of the Serbian tennis player.

Djokovic’s passport has been returned to him and the government will be responsible for paying his legal costs, the Federal Circuit Court has ruled.
