Novak Djokovic has had his visa cancelled for a second time, casting serious doubt over whether he can play in the Australian Open.
Immigration Minister Alex Hawke announced he had invoked his discretionary power, immediately seeking to deport the tennis star.
A statement from Hawke was released on Friday afternoon.
“Today I exercised my power under section 133C(3) of the Migration Act to cancel the visa held by Mr Novak Djokovic on health and good order grounds, on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so.
