Deutsche Telekom has ruled itself out of making a bid for O2, the telecoms giant confirmed today.

So that's that, then. Shares in O2 slipped 11.4p (5.46 per cent) in early trading this morning.

On Monday Spanish telco Telefonica announced that it planned to buy the O2 for £18bn as part of a strategic move to enter the UK and German markets.

Since then, speculation has mounted that DT might launch a counter offer that could spark a bidding war, although others believed DT would have been put off by the regulatory difficulties associated with such a deal.
