Novak Djokovic could be sent to jail if he is found to have lied on his travel forms to gain entry to Australia. The Serbian tennis ace is currently being investigated by Australia Border Force amid concerns that some of the information he provided was not accurate.

Djokovic incorrectly declared that he had not travelled and would not do so for two weeks prior to his flight to Australia.

But the 34-year-old appeared to be in Belgrade on Christmas Day after social media pictures revealed him alongside handball star Peter Djordjic.

He was then seen playing football with his brother in Spain on Tuesday, January 4, before flying to Melbourne a day later.

On the forms Djokovic filled in ahead of his flight Down Under, there is a declaration which warns people that any false or misleading information carries a maximum penalty of 12 months in prison.

So if Djokovic is adjudged to have been dishonest in his claims, he could face an anxious wait to see what punishment he faces.
