Celebrity businessman Steve Vizard will have to wait until next week to learn his fate after appearing today in court. A judge reserved his decision

after Vizard admitted failing his family, friends, and himself, by abusing his position as a company director. No stranger to cameras, Steve Vizard tried to direct things his way from the moment he arrived. Can you walk backwards a bit quicker? The media scrutiny just one part of his humiliation, as outlined in a repentant statement to the Federal Court. The 49-year-old spoke of remorse and regret, admitting to a serious breach of corporate law that let down family, friends, the community as a whole, and himself. A failure he vowed to spend the rest of his life atoning for.

Five years ago, while a director, he used secret Telstra information to trade shares in three companies. Despite the insider information, he still lost $300,000 on the deals. Associate professor Andrew Vizard said his brother had hurt him and devastated his family. Two other character witnesses highlighting Vizard's services to the arts. It seemed to me that, in these very difficult and unhappy circumstances, that very positive story about Steve Vizard's community contribution deserved to be told. I thought it was a fair hearing, and I really just want to thank all of the people who've given me their support. 11 statements and letters were also tendered, Vizard's greed led him to deliberately, secretly breach public trust, only avoiding criminal charges because key evidence wasn't there. Australia's corporate watchdog wants Vizard fined up to $390,000 and banned from managing companies for five years. He'll also pay the $200,000 bill for the investigation that led to his downfall. And he has one more legal problem to deal with when he gets home. Christopher Still, Ten News. High praise for the Australian cyclists who are fighting for their lives in Germany, three days after the car crash that killed team-mate Amy Gillett. Three other riders are stable, but shattered by the news of the death of their friend. Lining up a day overdue for the first stage of the touring road race,

the sombre faces of the Australian cyclists reflected their grief.

Amy Gillett's death on Monday in the tragic road accident has seen the tight-knit cycling community rally together here in Germany to comfort the victims and their families. Now support flying in from Australia - director of the Australian Institute of Sport Dr Peter Fricker ready to work with those who need help. They're all part of the AIS family, I know it sounds trite, but we really mean it and we really want to make sure everyone's looked after as long as they possibly need help. All five of the injured Australian cyclists are now here at the University Hospital in Jena, eastern Germany. Lorian Graham was moved here today to be closer to her team-mates. It's very difficult to predict

how long they need to stay on the unit. Doctors revealed the victims were thrown between 5m to 30m from the scene of the accident. Alexis Rhodes has a thoracic spinal injury and severe chest trauma. Louise Yaxley suffering a stab wound to her abdomen. The three remaining victims are all making good progress and are in stable conditions. Katie Brown's father says although his daughter is now doing well after surgery today, there were concerns she may lose a leg after suffering severe injuries to both knees. There has been some talk about amputating her leg. We weren't aware of that because we were in transit, but my eldest son has been ringing her on the hour yesterday keeping her awake because she was frightened if she went to sleep they'd take her leg off. Kate's brother, Olympic gold medallist cyclist Graham Brown, flew in from Italy as soon as he could to be by his sister's side. Simon Gillett, Amy's husband, is expected to soon arrive in Germany.
