He's one of the most popular figures in Brazil.
But the corruption conviction of Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva in 2017, divided public opinion.
His supporters said the Leftist leader was a victim of political persecution.
While Lula dismissed it as a ploy to sideline him from the 2018 presidential election - which was won by the far-right Jair Bolsonaro.
Now, Brazil's top court has ruled the judge in Lula's corruption case was 'biased'.
And evidence gathered in the investigation will not be used in any future trial.

But can Lula win over Brazilians once again?
