Black holes are important astrophysical objects describing an end state of stellar evolution, which are observed frequently. There are theoretical predictions that Kerr black holes with high spins expel magnetic �elds. However, Kerr black holes are pure vacuum solutions, which do not include accretion disks, and additionally previous investigations are mainly limited to weak magnetic �elds. We prove for the �rst time in full general relativity that generic rapidly spinning black holes including those deformed by accretion disks still expel even strong magnetic �elds. Analogously to a similar property of superconductors, this is called Meissner e�ect.
