Andy Murray brilliantly called out Nigel Farage for being an utter hypocrite, after the GB News host decided to champion Novak Djokovic's cause to get into Australia.
Djokovic was initially given an exemption to enter Australia for the Australian Open, despite not getting vaccinated, only for his visa to be cancelled on entry.
Whilst most Australians were annoyed he was originally given the exemption, the was the Serbian was treated on arriving to the country irked some people, including Murray.
One man who took a particular interest in the whole thing was Brexit supporter and the man who has failed on seven occasions to become an MP, Farage.
The 57-year-old saw the 'plight' of Djokovic being detained in Australia, ahead of the Australian Open, and went to visit his family in Serbia to support the tennis star, because he has absolutely no shame and will connect himself to anything.

Murray, who did defend his rival Djokovic and the treatment he was going through, jumped into action in pointing out that Farage was being a massive hypocrite.
The former UKIP leader had even gone as far as calling for an Australian style immigration system when he was campaigning for Brexit, but with Australia trying to implement their own system the right winger he wasn't happy.
Please record the awkward moment when you tell them you’ve spent most of your career campaigning to have people from Eastern Europe deported.😉 https://t.co/rfFn1hdXlu— Andy Murray (@andy_murray) January 9, 2022
So Mr Farage, what was it that got you interested in the plight of multi millionaire Novac Djokovic ? pic.twitter.com/VZANI1snKV— Andrew Winslet (@andrew_winslet) January 9, 2022
Have you told them you endorsed Australian-style border controls?— Brian Moore (@brianmoore666) January 9, 2022
Farage revealing himself to be a pure opportunist by supporting Djokovic, against a country which is MAKING ITS OWN RULES. Farage the terminal nonentity proves he simply wants "Empire privileges" to do EXACTLY what he wants and boss others around— Eva Feltham 💙 3.5% REJOINER FBPE FBPA #JohnsonOut (@MyGineration) January 9, 2022
I've been told by brexiteers to mind my own business when it comes to Brexit because I am a foreigner, but yet Nigel Farage goes no Sebia to support the Djokovic family. The same person who fought to keep those foreigners out. Hypocrisy much?— Carlos Hernandez 🏳️🌈🇪🇸🇮🇨🇪🇺❤ (@CarlosTF50) January 10, 2022

Refugees arriving in UK advised to carry tennis rackets to avoid anger from Nigel Farage and other right wingers.
Imagine being Nigel Farage and thinking - despite my racism and insistence that my country must have control of its own borders - the Djokovic family need me, a foreigner, to tell a foreign country what to do with their borders.— Danny Wallace (@dannywallace) January 9, 2022
Never elected. Just a boring man.
Farage no doubt would have been celebrating on Monday morning when Djokovic did win his appeal in the Australian court to be released from detention.
However, just minutes later it was reported that he'd once again been arrested, as the ridiculous saga took its newest twist.
For sure Farage will try snaking his way into the whole thing once again.
