The owner of both Greek club Olympiakos and English Championship side Nottingham Forest, Evangelos Marinakis has been cleared of forming a match-fixing ring in Greece.

Evangelos Marinakis was cleared by the Supreme Court but could still face a charge of bribery relating to match manipulation

A judicial council will now decide whether or not to drop that charge, with Marinakis denying any wrongdoing.

In November, he was charged with forming a match-fixing ring, but related blackmail and fraud charges against him were dropped after being re-examined by the Supreme Court.

Marinakis has gone on to describe himself as “a victim of a plot.” in weeks leading up to his trial.
