Former US football star and actor OJ Simpson has been granted parole after nine years in a Nevada prison.

“Thank you!” said 70-year-old Simpson, bowing his head as the commissioners approved him for release.

Simpson, who was acquitted for a double murder in 1995, has been serving time for armed robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and 11 other charges.

He is set to go free in October after being convicted of a 2007 confrontation at a Las Vegas hotel.

The former Hall of Fame running back was found guilty in 2008 – exactly 13 years to the day after he was famously acquitted for the killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
