I think they are purposely delaying his visa cancellation so he hasn't got time to challenge it through the courts in time for Monday.

MoB providing the most succinct way of tracking this story tbh. Although could be a few more options to use?

Pleading with authorities:


Disbelief

Checking the small print of his documentation to see where the answers were falsified


Resigned to the fact that it's over


Glare at border force whilst being deported

‘It said much about the ugliness of this case that so many took delight in the spectacle of a man’s public deportation. The affair has become emblematic of the Covid-19 culture wars, a battleground of binary choices and searing grievances……

All that mattered, in the with-us-or-against-us climate that has developed here, was that Djokovic had a background of expressing views that the Australian public regarded as intolerable.

This sets an alarming precedent…’
