A Milan court has ruled that Italy's former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi must do one year's community service over tax fraud.

He was convicted of tax fraud last year in connection with TV rights purchased by his firm Mediaset in the 1990s.

The alternative to community service had been house arrest.

The 77-year-old billionaire has been embroiled in a string of court cases.

He was spared prison in the Mediaset case because the Italian legal system is lenient to the over-70s.
