NBA star visits homeland in Sudan

Luol Deng is a multi-millionaire basketball star with the Chicago Bulls, and one of President Obama's favourite players.

He is also a mainstay of the British basketball team - courtesy of the British passport which he was given after he and his family fled the civil war in southern Sudan 20 years ago.
