“Someone Explain To Us In Plain Eng?” Australian cricket Shane Warne on Novak Djokovic’s Visa Issues


Shane Warne, who has been “embarrassed” by the controversy surrounding Novak Djokovic’s admittance to Australia, said on Tuesday that he wants answers to some fundamental issues, such as whether the Serbian tennis star attended public events despite a COVID-19 infection and who provided him with the medical exemption. Djokovic, the world number one, has been at the center of global controversy after arriving in Melbourne without being vaccinated for COVID-19 due to a medical exemption granted by Tennis Australia. He is aiming for a historic 21st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open.

On arrival, the 34-year-visa old’s was revoked, and he was detained. However, he won a legal struggle to have it returned, and he was seen practicing at Melbourne Park on Monday.
Djokovic said he didn’t require the inoculation because he had tested positive for the virus only a month before. When photos of him at public engagements during his illness were widely circulated, outrage ensued.

“Are these facts true? As I’ve read so many different reports in this messy embarrassing saga. Novak tested positive to covid Dec 16 & attended a public event on the 17th that inc (included) children. Said he hadn’t traveled in 14 days before arriving in Oz but traveled Jan 2 to Spain?” tweeted Warne.


“And did Novak have a medical exemption? If so – has the person who gave it to him been identified? What was that exemption? Just trying to get the facts as I’m embarrassed as a Victorian in this situation. Vic Govt are quiet? Can someone explain to us in plain Eng please,” Warne’s second tweet read
