A damages claim by Manchester United and Wales footballer Ryan Giggs against the Sun newspaper was thrown out by a High Court judge today.
Giggs claimed that The Sun "misused" private information and argued that he was entitled to claim damages for distress and breach of a right to privacy.

Mr Justice Tugendhat heard arguments at a High Court hearing in London last month and delivered his ruling today
