Controversial influencer Andrew Tate and his brother have been released from jail in Romania and placed under house arrest instead, his communication director has said.

The 36-year-old former professional kickboxer and his brother Tristan are being investigated over allegations of sexual assault and exploitation.

They are also being detained on suspicion of organised crime and human trafficking.

The pair were taken into custody on 29 December last year and neither of them has been formally charged in the case.
