Roman Abramovich wins court battle against Boris Berezovsky


Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich has won a legal battle against exiled Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky.

Mr Abramovich, 45, had denied being a business partner of Mr Berezovsky, 65, and breaching a contract with him.

During a trial in London Mr Berezovsky claimed Mr Abramovich betrayed him.

He said he intimidated him into selling shares in Russian oil company Sibneft for a "mere $1.3bn" (£800m).

Daniel Sandford reports.
