Murray slams Nigel Farage as former UKIP leader issues support to Novak Djokovic

Andy Muray has slammed Nigel Farage as the former UKIP leader issued support to Novak Djokovic and his family.

The former politician uploaded a video to social media visiting the Serbian’s trophy room along with his younger brother Djordje, 26.

He was seen greeting other people as he walked into the room and captioned the clip: “In the trophy room with Novak's brother Djordje.”

Murray, 34, replied to the tweet in such a savage manner it has been liked over 130,000 times.

“Please record the awkward moment when you tell them you’ve spent most of your career campaigning to have people from Eastern Europe deported,” the Scot wrote, before adding a wink emoji at the end of his message.

The former world number one delivered his opinion on the Djokovic saga that continues to roll on.

He said, as quoted by Australian newspaper The Age : "I think everyone is shocked by it [the circumstances], to be honest.

"I'm going to say two things on it just now. The first thing is that I hope that Novak is OK. I know him well, and I've always had a good relationship with him, and I hope that he's OK.

"The second thing I'll say on it … it's really not good for tennis at all, and I don't think it's good for anyone involved. I think it's really bad."

Despite concerns over his wellbeing, Murray hasn't been in contact with Djokovic amid claims the world No 1 had his phone and passport taken off him.

But he insisted the ATP have tried communicating with him as debacle continues to unfold.

"I haven't spoken to him, but I know the ATP have tried to be in communication and contact with him. I, personally, haven't spoken to him," Murray added.

In the saga's latest chapter, Djokovic won his appeal to remain in Australia.

However, police have attended the office of Djokovic's lawyers will the government seemingly still keen to deport the 34-year-old.

Brother Djordje told Sport Klub: "What we can do is to let this be known all over social media – they want to capture and lock up Novak again. We're currently consulting with PRs about next steps.

"He is at the moment with his lawyers in the room they were during the hearing, thinking about options."
