WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was today freed on bail after being granted conditional bail by a judge sitting in the High Court in London.
Outside the court he said: "It's great to smell the fresh air of London again. Thanks to all the people around the world who've had faith in me."
He said he hoped to continue his work and protest his innocence.
Mr Justice Ouseley turned down an appeal by prosectors against the decision to grant the WikiLeaks founder bail at an earlier hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court.
Assange is fighting extradition to Sweden over sex charges involving two women. He denies the allegations.
His supporters have offered to put up a surety of £240,000 to guarantee he surrenders to bail.
The judge made a ruling banning the use of Twitter during the court hearing.
