YouTube deleted the account of conspiracy theorist David Icke.

The video-sharing site said the 68-year-old had violated his policies on sharing information about the coronavirus.

The former footballer has made controversial and unproven claims about the virus on several Internet platforms, including the one linked to the 5G mobile network.

The video service, which is owned by Google, told the BBC: “YouTube has clear policies prohibiting any content that disputes the existence and transmission of Covid-19 as described by the WHO and the NHS.

“Due to continued violation of these policies, we have terminated David Icke’s YouTube channel. “

The ban follows a similar decision by Facebook, which deleted the Icke page on Friday.
