Novak Djokovic’s visa into Australia was allegedly granted on the basis that the top-ranked tennis pro had recently contracted COVID-19, but it was canceled on Thursday after the government found that he “failed to provide the appropriate evidence” to meet entry requirements, according to one report.

Djokovic announced Tuesday that he would be participating in the Australian Open after being granted a medical exemption that would allow him to enter the country. News of this prompted a firestorm of backlash after the government of Victoria, where Melbourne Park is located, previously mandated full vaccinations for all players, staff and fans unless there is a genuine medical reason.
