Djokovic thanks ‘people around the world for continuous support’

Novak Djokovic has made his first appearance since setting foot on Australian soil. The Serbian tennis player is currently staying at a hotel in Melbourne after being refused entry to the country earlier this week.

“Thank you people around the world for your continued support. I can feel it and it is very much appreciated,” Djokovic wrote in a short update on Instagram.

Djokovic is awaiting a trial, which is due on Monday. The world’s number 1 thought he had a valid ‘medical exemption’ to participate in the Australian Open in a week and a half, but according to the Australian authorities, Djokovic was unable to demonstrate why he would be entitled to it.

Shortly before leaving for Melbourne, Djokovic posted a photo of himself at an airport on Instagram. He has not spoken publicly since then. His father Srdjan did. He even likened his son’s treatment to the fate of Jesus Christ. “Jesus was crucified, all kinds of things were done to him. He endured it and still lives among us. Now they are trying to crucify Novak in the same way and do something to him,” said the father of the twenty-time grand slam champion.
