Formula One boss Bernie Ecclestone has rejected accusations of bribery as he went on trial iin Germany today.
Ecclestone told a Munich court that a German banker who received a disputed $44 million (£26 million) payment did not tell the truth.
ITV News Reporter Sasha Williams reports:
In a personal statement read out by his lawyers, Ecclestone said he was "grateful" to be able to give his side of the story, though he told judges that he would answer questions from the Munich state court through his lawyers, rather than personally.
