Novak Djokovic denied entry to Riverland after failing to dispose of fruit at Yamba Quarantine Station

Tennis world champion Novak Djokovic has once again fallen on hard times, after failing to dispose of a bag of oranges at the Yamba Quarantine Station. The world number 1 was set to defend his title at the upcoming Australian Open, hosted at the Cobdogla Tennis Courts, but is instead being deported from the Riverland region.

Djokovic’s entry into the region with his bag of oranges had been preapproved by the Cobdogla council, but the Riverland Border Force is claiming that his entry documentation is not sufficient. While his legal team prepares to challenge this decision in court, Djokovic will be forced into quarantine at the Berri Hotel.

The Riverlanderer will update as this story develops.
