Australian administration readies case to DEPORT Novak Djokovic as investigation hones in on 'inconsistencies' in his statement - amid concern letting him stay sets a 'dangerous precedent.'

The Australian Federal Government is tonight still preparing paperwork to try and boot Novak Djokovic out of the country, with sources warning letting him stay would set a 'dangerous precedent'.

It is understood the government is willing to receive intense backlash internationally over the issue in order to maintain its 'tough on Covid' border stance.

The world no. 1 was initially set to be given the boot after being detained at an immigration hotel over the weekend but won a battle in the Federal Circuit Court to remain in the country and chase his 10th Australian Open title.

Immigration Minister Alex Hawke is set to hand down his decision on Thursday with bureaucrats from the Department of Home Affairs' investigating inconsistencies in Novak story.
