Chris Cairns cleared of perjury over cricket cheat case

Former New Zealand cricketer Chris Cairns has been found not guilty of perjury and perverting the course of justice - having been accused of falsely declaring under oath during a 2012 libel case that he had "never, ever cheated at cricket".

Speaking outside Southwark Crown Court in London, the retired all-rounder said: "It's been hell for the last five or so years."
