A civil trial between former professional wrestler Hulk Hogan and the website Gawker over a sex video is due to begin in Florida.

The ex-wrestler, whose legal name is Terry Bollea, sued Gawker after it published parts of a sex video in 2012.

He is seeking $100m (€92m) from Gawker for posting the video of him and Heather Cole, the ex-wife of Hogan's one-time friend and radio show host Bubba the Love Sponge Clem.

Gawker says it had the right to publish the edited video because Hogan talked in detail about his sex life before the video's release, which made the story newsworthy.
