'Boy from Burundi' shines at Wimbledon

Hassan Ndayishimiye made history at Wimbledon this week, becoming the first player from Burundi, a country in eastern Africa, to play at a Grand Slam.

The 16-year-old is ranked 112 in the world junior rankings and only made it to the All England Club due to help by the International Tennis Federation (ITF).

BBC Sport's Nick Hope caught up with the 'boy from Burundi' after he won his first round junior boys match against Chile's Matias Sborowitz.
