Novak Djokovic was arrested by immigration officials on Saturday as he fights Australian government efforts to deport him.

Court documents filing by his lawyers confirmed that as of 9.19am in Melbourne he was being held in immigration detention as a court decides whether he can be deported after entering Australia without being vaccinated.

A judge had ruled that Djokovic would be allowed to stay at his residence until a Saturday morning meeting with immigration officials, after which he was taken into custody and escorted to his lawyers’ office. It is not known where he was held after that.

Border officials are expected to escort him back to his lawyer’s office on Sunday morning for the hearing where both sides will present their cases.

The judge decided that Djokovic could only be deported after the end of the appeal in court. It is not known whether he would voluntarily leave the country. His attorneys did not return emails seeking comment on Saturday.

Djokovic’s lawyers, worried about the media storm surrounding his case, have sought to keep his location secret. A judge ruled that Djokovic’s lawyers and the immigration department must agree on his whereabouts.

On Friday, Djokovic’s lawyers argued unsuccessfully that he should be kept out of immigration detention pending the appeal.
