But if I believe you @DeKa is that hearsay?!I watched it live and heard the word unanimous too.
Fun fact - Serbia is one of the few countries that don’t need the (expensive and very very detailed) visa to get into Russia.I don't get my news from TV but read widely so I can make up my mind on issues.
I read those from the right,the left and in the middle. You are as likely to read false news in all of them. More often news that is not in agreement with their fixed views goes unreported.
So he’ll use his personal jet or drive home to Monaco?France change laws on Sunday...
Novak Djokovic arrives back in Belgrade after deportation from Australia
6. Where it's asked - having to answer "Yes" to being denied a visaNot surprised but his life is looking rather painful right now...
1. Deported from Australia (knock on impacts when visiting other countries)
2. Unable to play in the Australian open
3. Potential sponsor loss
4. Probably unable to play in the French open
5. Constant media attention (realistically a bad thing)

Tennis Australia denies seeking loopholes for unvaccinated players as Novak Djokovic included in draw
Australian Open organisers say ‘all players, participants and staff’ must be vaccinated as Djokovic, who has not revealed his vaccination status, is included in tournament draw

Tennis Australia has hit back at suggestions it is seeking to exploit a “loophole” in border entry rules so unvaccinated players can compete in the upcoming Australian Open, as it included Novak Djokovic in the draw for the January grand slam.
I share this unpopular sentiment, though I'm triple vaxxed."I myself am vaccinated, double-jabbed, but I think no-one should be forced to do something... he was judged and sentenced for his freedom of choice," he added.

Djokovic sponsor Lacoste wants to 'review' Australia events with tennis star
Novak Djokovic has departed Australia after authorities canceled his visa for a second time. Now, one of his sponsors wants a word.
Lacoste said Monday that it wants to review events that sparked a nearly two-week legal battle and prevented the unvaccinated Serbian from defending his Australian Open title. Australia requires international visitors to be vaccinated against Covid-19 unless they have a medical exemption.
"As soon as possible, we will be in touch with Novak Djokovic to review the events that have accompanied his presence in Australia," the French clothing brand said in a statement.
Djokovic's sponsors have said very little since his visa was first revoked shortly after his arrival in Australia on January 5. It is unclear when Djokovic will take to the court again. He will have the chance to break the men's grand slam title record at the French Open in May but the events in Australia have raised questions about how unvaccinated players will compete on the season's tour.
French automaker Peugeot, another Djokovic sponsor now owned by Stellantis, declined to comment on Monday. Swiss watchmaker Hublot and Japanese sportswear giant Asics (ASCCF) did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Djokovic has endorsement deals worth $30 million a year, according to Forbes, and was the world's 46th highest-paid athlete in 2021.
Lacoste was founded in 1933 by 7-time grand slam winner, René Lacoste, and entrepreneur André Gillier. The brand became famous for its lightweight cotton polo shirts bearing the logo of a crocodile — a nickname given to Lacoste during his playing days.

ND had and still has, complete freedom of choice about whether to be vaccinated. But actions have consequences, even non-actions, and in this case the freedom that was curtailed was to pursue his sporting interest down under.....
