An Australian federal court on Sunday ruled that Novak Djokovic will be deported from the country, upholding his latest visa cancellation, APA reports.

"The orders of the court are that the amended application be dismissed with costs", Chief Justice James Allsop said.

According to the court, the ruling was based on the lawfulness and legality of the minister's decision to revoke Djokovic's visa.

"It is no part of the function of the court to decide upon the merits or wisdom of the [government's] decision", Allsop added, stressing that the verdict was unanimous among the three judges.

The reasoning behind the decision is expected to be issued in the coming days.
