A$AP Rocky is a free man - at least for the time being.

The American rapper has been temporarily released from custody in Sweden until a judge issues a verdict in the assault trial.

The decision is expected to be made later this month.

The 30-year-old, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has pleaded not guilty to assaulting a 19-year-old man in Stockholm.
