'Shameful': Novak Djokovic's Deportation From Australia Leaves Some Fans Fuming

Novak Djokovic has officially been barred from entering Australia and fans have flocked to social media to have their say on the matter.

Despite controversially being granted a vaccine exemption to play at this year's Australian Open, the world No.1 had his visa cancelled at the final hurdle and will now be put on the first place back to Serbia.

When news first broke of Djokovic's vaccine hall pass, tennis fans and Aussies alike were sent into a frenzy, many left outraged by the decision and even threatened to boycott the event.

But news of this latest backflip has arguably made even bigger headlines, although it seems to have left a bunch of people divided.

While some have heaped praise on the Australian government for standing strong on their vaccine and border policies, others clearly don't see it in the same light and have hit out instead.

Meanwhile, others poked fun, wasting no time in spitting out some memes which best reflected their thoughts on the tense situation.
