A well-known Hong Kong billionaire has offered $65m (£40m) to any man able to woo and marry his lesbian daughter.

Property and shipping tycoon Cecil Chao publicly promised the "marriage bounty" after reports emerged that his daughter had wed her long-term girlfriend.

He told the BBC that his daughter was "intelligent and beautiful" and that she could "do whatever she wants" but said his offer had generated many replies from potential suitors.
