Julian Assange, being held over alleged sex offences in Sweden, was refused bail at an extradition hearing earlier this week.

He could be in jail until at least his next appearance in court on Tuesday.

Assange was arrested as WikiLeaks continues to release secret cables from US embassies.

A source at the prison said that among several notes Assange has received are ones saying: “Hi Julian – good luck”, “Sorry you’re in here – it’s wrong” and “We are one within here – Merry Christmas”.

Another said: “Dear Julian, welcome to the real Frontline Club,” referring to the journalists’ club in London where he was staying before his arrest.

Assange is wearing a prison issue grey tracksuit and has no access to a computer.

He has not yet received a personal visit but both his legal team and an Australian diplomat have been to see him, each for about an hour.

Sky understands Assange has said: “I’m feeling in relatively good spirits but I wish I was out.”
