There will be a further delay in the proceedings with Bernie Ecclestone’s bribery charges, the German news agency DPA is reporting.

We reported in mid May that more would be known about the Formula One chief executive’s German legal troubles in June, such as whether or not the court might decide to push ahead with a trial.

But that delay has now been pushed back to July, court spokeswoman Margarete Notzel has announced.

She said the further delay is “because of the necessary [German to English] translation work”. (GMM)
