Novak Djokovic made headlines in recent days over his entry into Australia to play in the Australian Open.

While his visa was cancelled by the Australian authorities, the world number one managed to have the decision overturned in the courts earlier this week in a shock decision.

With this in mind, we asked you whether or not you thought Djokovic should be allowed to play in the Australian Open in our poll this morning, and this is how you responded.
