Pop star Rihanna has won a legal battle against Topshop, after suing the retailer for printing her image on a tank top without permission.

According to the BBC, three appeal judges agreed that selling the garment without the singer’s permission amounted to “passing off” – the unauthorised used of a person’s image.

Rihanna opened the case in July 2013 and is suing the fashion retailer for $5m (£3.3m).
