Pat Hickey will face trial in Rio for Olympic ticket-touting, a judge has dramatically ruled.

The former Olympic Council of Ireland president (71) may have to wait up to 18 months for his case to come to court.

The judge accepted the criminal charges filed by prosecutors against Mr Hickey and ticketing executive Kevin James Mallon.

Their passports remain confiscated. They were ordered to report to the court on the 20th day of every month, abide by a 10pm curfew and to not visit Paralympic Games venues.
