Djokovic Australian visa court hearing set for Sunday morning

World’s top tennis player due to hand himself in to immigration officers for detention

An Australian court set the hearing over Novak Djokovic’s visa cancellation case on Sunday at 9.30am local time (10.30pm Irish time on Saturday) as the world’s top ranked tennis player fights to overturn the the Australian government’s decision to remove him from the country.

Justice David O’Callaghan said on Saturday the court would liaise with all parties on whether the proceeding had to be heard by a single judge or full court later in the day.

Djokovic was due to hand himself into immigration officers for detention on Saturday and was required to surrender to officials in Melbourne for an interview, according to a court order issued on Friday night. – Reuters
