The trial of US actor and comic Bill Cosby has begun in Philadelphia.
The entertainer has been accused of allegedly molesting a woman who was seeking career advice in 2004.
Dozens of other women have also accused the 79-year-old of sexual assault but due to statutes of limitation he is on trial for only one allegation.

It is being seen as the biggest US celebrity court case since that of the murder trial of American football player OJ Simpson.

The comic who at one time was the highest paid actor in the US will not testify.
The trial is expected to last about two weeks.
