I report on the computation of fully exclusive four-lepton production at next-to-next-to-leading order in QCD perturbation theory by means of the qT-subtraction method. This method, which is applicable to achieve NNLO QCD accuracy in the production of any colourless final-state, is introduced, and the technical realization of the calculation within the MATRIX framework is briefly discussed. I present numerical results and, where available, comparisons to experimantal data on fiducial cross sections and selected differential distributions for the production of ZZ, WW and WZ pairs in their leptonic decay modes.
