Elon Musk wins 'pedo guy' defamation case

Elon Musk did not defame a British diver who helped in last year's Thai cave rescue with a "pedo guy" tweet, a US jury has found.

Vernon Unsworth was seeking $190m (£145m) in damages from the Tesla founder, over the tweet sent last year.

A public row broke out between the two over the rescue of 12 boys trapped in a Thai cave in June 2018.

Billionaire Mr Musk told the court this week the phrase "pedo guy" was common in South Africa, where he grew up.
