It’s all over for Rooney and Vardy

The verdict in the Wagatha Christie libel case has been revealed.

The long-running legal battle between Rebekah Vardy and Coleen Rooney came to an end virtually today (July 29).

After weeks of waiting, the judgement was handed down by Mrs Justice Steyn at midday.

It was delivered remotely, rather than in court.

It comes after the trial came to an end in May following both cases being presented.
