The chief executive of computer firm Yahoo has stepped down, amid accusations that a fake computer science degree was included on his CV.

The California-based company confirmed media reports that Scott Thompson had quit his post.

He has been replaced by Yahoo's global media head Ross Levinsohn.

The firm is also reportedly close to agreeing a truce with activist shareholder Daniel Loeb, who discovered Thompson's mistake.
