The World No.1 tennis star tennis player, Novak Djokovic, may have left Australia, but the incident surrounding his sudden departure have certianly not been forgotten.
Djokovic was deported from the Australia on Sunday night after unsuccessfully appealing the cancellation of his visa
However the saga is still very much at the forefront of the narrative at the Australian Open, with players continuing to field questions about Djokovic.
And in the latest twist, a billboard near Melbourne Park took a cheeky dig at the Serbian star on Tuesday, according to Yahoo Sports.
One of the annual Australian Lamb ads made mention of Djokovic in a billboard on a truck not too far from where the Australian Open is taking place.
“Everyone’s welcome at our BBQ. Not Djoking,” the sign for the Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) ad reads.
MLA says the ads are all about sharing.
“Building on the ‘Share the Lamb’ brand platform, the 6-week integrated campaign reflects upon how Australia has become isolated from the rest of the world due to strict international border closures during the pandemic,” the MLA website says.
