Watched by the world’s media, Italy’s biggest-ever football trial has begun. Four leading clubs face match-fixing charges that could force them out of the top league and European competition.

Sitting at Rome’s Olympic Stadium, judges are considering charges against Serie A champions Juventus, AC Milan, Fiorentina and Lazio, as well as 26 senior officials, referees and linesmen.

It could lead to the teams being relegated and stripped of their titles and the individuals being either suspended or banned from football.
