US basketball player Brittney Griner has pleaded guilty to drug charges in a Russian court but has denied deliberately breaking the law.

The Olympic gold medallist was detained in February at an airport near Moscow when cannabis oil vape cartridges were allegedly found in her luggage.

She told the court in Khimki that she was in a rush packing and the cartridges accidentally ended up in her bag.

Her trial began last week on charges that could mean 10 years in jail.
