Rebekah Vardy has lost her "Wagatha Christie" libel trial against Coleen Rooney over a viral social media post.

Vardy, the wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy, took Rooney, the wife of England's record goal scorer Wayne Rooney, to court after she was accused of supplying the media with private information about Coleen Rooney.

It came after Rooney had staged an elaborate sting operation to find out who was passing on stories about her private life.

Judge Karen Steyn said in a written ruling on Friday that Rooney's allegation was "substantially true."

Steyn said it was likely that Vardy's agent, Caroline Watt, had passed private information to The Sun newspaper and that "Mrs. Vardy knew of and condoned this behaviour."
