Nigel Farage, former leader of the U.K. Independence and Brexit parties, and Andy Murray, a Scottish tennis player formerly ranked No. 1 in the world, sparred on Twitter after Farage tweeted in support of Novak Djokovic.

Djokovic, the Serbian tennis player currently ranked No. 1 in the world, won his appeal Monday and will be allowed to compete in the Australian Open. The Australian government attempted to deport Djokovic for violating the country's public health rules after he arrived in the country Wednesday without having first received the COVID-19 vaccine.
