“I am talking with the Djokovic family, and they are clear that Tennis Australia, in line with Victoria state law, allowed Novak to come to Australia as he had proof of a positive PCR test within the last six months,” he after Djokovic was refused entry to Australia.

“He was then arrested, his phone and wallet taken. When the Australian Home Affairs Minister says Novak Djokovic is free to leave, she is NOT being straight.

“Unless he makes an appeal, he will face an automatic three-year visa ban — so has to stay in prison conditions until the hearing on Monday. If they can do this to the world’s number one tennis player, just think what they could do to you.”

Now Farage has released images showing him in Serbia with Djokovic’s family and what is a hugely impressive trophy room.
