Julian Assange in fighting spirit, says lawyer

Julian Assange's legal adviser, Baltasar Garzon, has said his client is in "fighting spirit".

The comment came in a statement outside the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where the Wikileaks founder has been since June.

Mr Assange faces extradition to Sweden over sexual assault claims, which he denies.

Mr Garzon added that Mr Assange was "thankful to the people of Ecuador and especially to President Correa for granting him asylum".
