BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Novak Djokovic's father said his son is being held in a room with police out front after landing in Melbourne for the Australian Open.
The top-ranked Djokovic received a medical exemption to play at the first Grand Slam tournament of the season.
The exemption allows him entry to the tournament regardless of his vaccination status for COVID-19.
It's a subject he has declined to clarify amid months of speculation.
"Novak is currently in a room which no one can enter," Djokovic's father said.
The Age newspaper reports that Djokovic landed at Tullamarine Airport, but his entry was delayed because of a mistake with his visa application.
