King Felipe's brother-in-law, Iñaki Urdangarin, has been pictured hand-in-hand with another woman while his wife, Infanta Cristina de Borbón, remains living in Switzerland.

The photographs published by Spanish publication Lecturas, show the former handball player, 54, walking along a beach with an unknown woman.

Last year, Iñaki was granted permission to move to Spain's tercer grado or Grade 3 prison regime, meaning that he only reports to prison once a week.
