Illegal entry! Djokovic is also threatened with trouble in Spain

In addition to the entry dispute in Australia, tennis star Novak Djokovic may also face trouble with the authorities in Spain.

Everything indicates that the 34-year-old Serb entered the EU country illegally shortly before New Year’s Eve, as reported by the usually well-informed radio station “Cadena Cope” and other Spanish media.

When he entered the country, the world number one neither presented proof of vaccination nor applied for the special permit that is mandatory for unvaccinated Serbs in Spain, it said, citing the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Madrid.

The government in Madrid commissioned the police to initiate an investigation.

Djokovic seen and filmed in southern Spain

According to media reports from Spain and Australia, among others, Djokovic was seen, photographed and filmed on December 31 and January 2 and 3 in the posh southern Spanish seaside resort of Marbella.

There he trained, among other things, in the Club de Tenis Puente Romano and gave autographs, as reported, among other things, by the renowned Spanish newspaper “El País”. According to the media, the Serb owns a house in Marbella in the province of Andalusia.

Meanwhile, the Australian authorities are still eagerly awaiting the decision as to whether Djokovic can stay in the country and defend his title at the Australian Open from Monday. Last week he was refused entry into the country because he was not vaccinated against the corona virus and the authorities did not have sufficient documentation for his medical exemption.

However, because the border officials had not given him the agreed time to clarify the matter, the judge temporarily overturned the decision on Monday.
