Text size Aa Aa

Retired US basketball star, Dennis Rodman, has arrived in North Korea, where he is expected to spend four days coaching the national basketball team.

Human rights activists have urged Rodman to speak to the state’s Supreme Leader, Kim Jong-un about alleged abuses in the country.

“I’m just going over there to do a basketball game, and have some fun,” was Rodman’s response ahead of his third trip to North Korea.

He claims to have a genuine friendship with Kim Jong-un, and has dined as a guest of the leader during his two previous visits to Pyongyang.
