WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will hold a press conference this morning where he is expected to announce he is leaving the Ecuadorian embassy after two years.
The Australian is in need of critical hospital treatment after developing heart and lung problems and could hand himself in to police on his release, sources reportedly told The Sun (£).
He sought refuge inside Ecuador's embassy in London after exhausting all routes of appeal to avoid extradition to Sweden for questioning over sexual misconduct allegations.
Assange denies the claims made against him.
