Ryan Giggs has been dismissed from court after a jury failed to reach a verdict.

The former Manchester United winger was expecting to learn of the outcome of his trial at Manchester Crown Court on Wednesday afternoon but is instead no closer.

Giggs was standing accused of assaulting his former girlfriend Kate Greville and her sister on the night of November 1, 2020.

The ex-Wales manager had also been accused of behaving in a controlling and coercive manner towards his ex between August 2017 and November 2020.

The jury failed to reach verdicts on any of the three charges upon which at least 10 of them agreed. When asked by the judge asked if they could eventually get their decision over the line, the jury replied 'no'.

The jury of seven women and four men has now been discharged as a result.

Prosecution lawyers have asked for seven days to consider if they will pursue a retrial which if the judge said would not be able to happed until June 5 next year.
