A Leeds man accused of throwing a plastic bottle on to the track at the start of the men’s Olympic 100m final will stand trial in January.

Ashley Gill-Webb, of Cornmill Crescent, South Milford, was arrested after the incident at London’s Olympic Stadium in August, which led Dutch world judo champion Edith Bosch to intervene.

Gill-Webb pleaded not guilty to using threatening words or behaviour with intent to cause harassment, alarm or distress under the Public Order Act.
