After an 11-day fight to remain in Australia, Novak Djokovic lost the battle on Sunday when three judges unanimously upheld Immigration Minister Alex Hawke’s decision to revoke his visa a second time and Djokovic was forced to leave the country later in the day.

During his stay in Melbourne, Djokovic spent most of his time at the Park hotel, which is being used to house asylum-seekers.

His mother Djina Djokovic claimed that he was being treated “like a prisoner”.

Now there have been reports that he will take legal action against the Australian government for treating him poorly.

It is claimed that he will sue for £3.2million with the figure including £2.3million prize money he would have received had he won the tournament.

A source close to his agent Edoardo Artladi is quoted as saying: “It’s well known that Novak and his family feel he was poorly treated in the quarantine hotel in Melbourne. His mother revealed how it was full of fleas and maggots. He was kept a virtual prisoner.”

Lawyer Toma Fila added: “He was subjected to humiliating treatment. He should sue.”
