Roger Clemens breaks down after perjury verdict
A former US baseball star has been cleared of lying to Congress about using performance-enhancing drugs.
Roger Clemens, 49, faced six counts of perjury, making false statements and obstructing Congress in a nationally televised hearing in February 2008.
He has repeatedly denied using steroids and human growth hormone during a 24-year career as a professional athlete.
The verdict came after a 10-week trial and a five-year investigation into one of baseball's most renowned figures.
