Despite the ruling in his favour that he is free to leave the detention centre where he had been held, Ksenija Pavlovic McAteer has now reported that the world No.1 tennis player has been picked up.

Having spoken to Srdan Dokovic, the father of Djokovic, McAteer adds that the Australian government “want to deport” the 34-year-old.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner was held in the government facility on his arrival at Melbourne airport early last week after the decision was made to withdraw his visa.

He won his court battle on Monday, Jan 10. It was eventually ruled that his visa cancellation order would be immediately quashed and that he would be released from detention.

However, it seems as though Djokovic may still be banned from playing at this month’s tournament in Melbourne and deported by government officials in spite of the verdict.

He was arrested shortly after the end of his court case on Monday, with his legal team now weighing up their options as they plan a response, according to The Pavlovic Today.

It is claimed that the Australian government are keen to send Djokovic on his way and are looking to do so as a matter of urgency, with his proposed deportation said to be “underway”.

Bayern Munich forward Sadio Mané has been backed by sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic to rediscover his form.

“Sadio still needs a little time. He has to get used to the Bundesliga. But he will,” Salihamidzic said on Wednesday.

Mané made a strong start to his Bayern Munich career after moving from Liverpool in June but has now gone five games without a goal.

The German champions, looking to play without the main striker after the exit of Robert Lewandowski, have not won in four Bundesliga games.

“I know how it is as the new player in a team, in another country, in another city, in another football culture,” Salihamidzic said. “Sadio is going through this process. Soon he will trust himself more, and we will see that on the pitch.”

Salihamidzic added that he did not expect much transfer movement in January after November and December’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Brazil condemns banana attack on Richarlison in Paris during Tunisia match -

Brazilian head coach Tite and ex international, Juninho Paulista ​have condemned the racist attack on Richarlison in Paris, during the game against Tunisia at the Parc des Princes.

A banana was thrown at the Tottenham Hotspur forward during his goal celebration when he restored the five-time world champions lead in the 19th minute, to cancel Tunisian Montassar Talbi equalizer.

Speaking after the game, Juninho said, “The reason why I came here is to talk about the racism our player suffered during the game. The Brazilian Football Confederation, CBF released a statement about this and I came here (to the press conference) to retirate this position. I severely condemn all racist conduct.”

The Brazilian football confederation in a tweet after the game stated, “After Brazil’s second goal, a banana was thrown towards Richarlison. The CBF reinforces its stance against discrimination and vehemently repudiates yet another episode of racism in football.”

The former Everton forward also called on FFIA to act and not just speak about it. ​

“The process of education and punishment should also be at the stadium,” Tite said.

Tite added, “The Tunisian fans disrespected our national anthem, they booed us. That’s not respect. Football governing body needs to act quickly incidents like this.”
