Australia news- Former Australian tennis player Dylan Alcott has responded to Prime Minister Scott Morrison's statement that he was "lucky" not to have children with disabilities.

Morrison made his speech during the presidential debate with Anthony Albanese on Wednesday after a mother of an autistic child asked him about disability benefits.

"God blessed Jenny and I, we have two non-disabled children," Morrison said.

Alcott's response included a criticism of both Morrison, who said on Thursday, "I woke up in the morning feeling blessed to be disabled."

"I think my parents are also happy about that... Feeling sorry doesn't help our families," he added.

Alcott explained that what is important for people with disabilities is to treat them equally and give them the choice of control and independence in their lives.

Morrison's statement was widely criticized by several political and social parties, most notably Grace Tammy, who won the Australian title in 2021 before Dylan Alcott.
