Italy's former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has broadcast an angry video message after his prison sentence for tax fraud was upheld by the country's highest court.
Berlusconi said he was the innocent victim of "an incredible series of accusations and trials that had nothing to do with reality".
The court also ordered a further judicial review on whether he should be banned from holding public office.
