There has been a juror deadlock in the latest Bill Cosby trial which has forced the judge to grant a mistrial.

After 52 hours of deliberation, the jury in Cosby's sex assault trial announced it was "hopelessly deadlocked" on all charges.

While prosecutors say they will retry the case against Cosby, the former TV star's supporters are claiming victory.

Judge Steven O'Neill declared a mistrial following a note from jurors saying that they could not come to a unanimous decision on three counts of aggravated sexual assault.

The result was a victory for the 79-year-old who had faced years in prison for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting college administrator Andrea Constand at his home near Philadelphia in 2004.
