This chapter presents the results of the \(t\bar{t}\) spin correlation analysis. First, the fit results for the eight individual channels are presented for the down-type quark as well as for the \(b\)-quark analyser. The individual channels are fitted without nuisance parameters. As a next step, the channels are combined for both spin analysers and a full combination is performed.
