US comedian Bill Cosby has been found guilty of three counts of sexual assault.

The actor has been on trial for drugging and assaulting ex-basketball player Andrea Constand in 2004.

Cosby, 80, had denied Ms Constand’s claims, with his lawyer branding her a “con artist”.

It was the second time the actor had stood trial for the allegations, after an earlier jury failed to reach a verdict in June 2017.

Cosby is best known for starring in the 1980s TV series The Cosby Show.
