A former Chinese Communist Party official once tipped for a top leadership position has been sentenced to life in prison for bribery.
 
Sun Zhengcai, a former Politburo member, is the latest senior figure to fall in President Xi Jinping's anti-corruption campaign.
 
He was found guilty of taking bribes of more than $26.7m (£19.6m).
 
The 54-year-old, also the former party chief of Chongqing, pleaded guilty to the charges in April.
 
According to state media outlet Xinhua, Sun's "illegal gains" would be confiscated.
