The Australian government has hit back at tennis star Novak Djokovic's assertion that he was assured entry with a medical exemption from coronavirus vaccine requirements.

Lawyers fighting to deport the tennis star today argued that nobody has a guaranteed right to enter the country.

Djokovic's legal team argue a recent infection gives him a valid exemption. The tennis star remains in a detention hotel after having his visa revoked.
