Novak Djokovic has been accused of FAKING his Covid-19 test and being a 'lying sneaky arsehole' by an Australian TV channel in damning off-air footage.
Djokovic has been embroiled in a bitter row with the Australian Open, with the 34-year-old winning his appeal to stay in the country.
The Serbian had been forced to stay in the Melbourne hotel after being blocked by border officials last week.
His spat with the Australian Open and local authorities has dominated coverage Down Under.
Djokovic's controversy angered the reporters of Channel 7 as they slammed the tennis superstar.
The female reporter called the No.1 seed a 'lying sneaky arseh**e' to which the male reporter reacted by agreeing with her.
She continued by questioning the player's Covid-19 test.
Djokovic believes his Covid-19 infection last month means he is exempt from a rule that non-Australians must be vaccinated.
The camera kept rolling with the pair of reporters absolutely ripping into the defending Australian Open champion.
Djokovic is grateful with the judge for overturning the decision and thanked the support he's received during the ordeal.
I’m pleased and grateful that the Judge overturned my visa cancellation. Despite all that has happened,I want to stay and try to compete @AustralianOpen— Novak Djokovic (@DjokerNole) January 10, 2022
