    Sydney, Jan 8 (ANI): Julian Assange, the founder of the WikiLeaks website, has appointed a public relations firm after a series of damaging blows to his image.

    The whistle blower, who is on bail during his fight to avoid extradition to Sweden over sexual assault allegations, has taken a battering in the media as his personal life is scrutinised.

    The 39-year-old has hired firm Borkowski, a London-based public relations firm, owned by master publicist Mark Borkowski, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

    A four-member team is now dealing with media enquiries about him and also holding an online weekly media conference to deliver messages from him and WikiLeaks.

    Assange has also signed a one million pounds book deal to tell his life story. (ANI)
