Just hours after a long meeting between the British Foreign Secretary and the Iranian President in Tehran, there could be some positive news in the case of a jailed British-Iranian charity worker.

A court hearing due to be held on Sunday for Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe was postponed.

Nazanin's husband, Richard Ratcliffe, told Sky News: "I couldn't have asked for him (Boris Johnson) to do more than get there before the court case and, you know, the court case hasn't happened.

"That's a great outcome. I mean, one thing her dad said to him yesterday was 'please try to be Nazanin's hero', and it feels like, you know, we're on that path at the moment."

However, there is no official indication yet from Tehran that the postponement of the case is significant.

Boris Johnson had been under pressure to do more to help Zaghari-Ratcliffe, having earlier been accused of making comments damaging to her case.
