What you need to know:

  • Immigration Minister Alex Hawke said he acted on "health and good order grounds on the basis that it was in the public interest to do so"
  • The cancellation effectively means Djokovic would be barred from a new Australian visa for three years, except under certain circumstances
  • The visa decision put the Serbian world number one's dream of a 10th Australian Open title and a record 21st Grand Slam in peril
