Will the Julian Assange story ever end?

Celebrities and supporters of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claim he is a freedom fighter.

His lawyers argue the extradition case is politically motivated.

But should the 49-year-old be sent to the US to face charges including espionage and hacking?

The legal struggle over his future has spanned a decade following the publication of secret military and diplomatic documents by WikiLeaks.

But how long will it continue for?

On today’s Sky News Daily podcast, our diplomatic editor Dominic Waghorn examines the background and significance of the case with Sky’s home affairs editor Jason Farrell – plus we’re joined by barrister Ben Keith, an expert on human rights and extradition law.
