After several hours of an agonisingly slow wait – in a freezing cold court room with no devices or any means to pass the time – there was suddenly a flurry of activity at about 11:00 local time (16:00 BST).

The first those in court heard a verdict was coming was from another reporter, whose colleague had been in a hallway and overheard something. All of a sudden, reporters who had been outside rushed back into the room, many out of breath.

Minutes later, a court official came in and announced: « I can confirm that we’ve got a verdict ».

It was another five minutes or so until the trial’s cast of characters came back in the room. First came the prosecutors, Derek Hines and Leo Wise, who both seemed confident and jovial.

Next came Hunter Biden, alongside his wife Melissa Cohen Biden and his attorney, Abbe Lowell.

Biden seemed subdued, with none of the smiles we saw when he ran into him last night. He walked to his seat quickly, only stopping briefly to greet a small group of close friends and allies that have been supporting him in court.

James Biden, the president’s brother, came in last, and sat quietly on the far end of a row as the verdict was read out, hands clasped in his lap.
