Novak Djokovic has strongly claimed that freedom of speech is now an ‘illusion’ as he hits back at scrutiny over his decision not to be vaccinated against Covid.
It has been a rollercoaster year for the Serbian and it started when he was deported from Australia in January due to his unvaccinated status, despite initially being given a medical exemption to compete at the Open.
Djokovic was detained upon his arrival at Melbourne Airport where he was eventually deported home just a day before the tournament begun – leading to a long legal battle.
