Malaysian billionaire adds Welsh soccer club to business empire

Malaysian billionaire Vincent Tan famously became one of the country's richest men after winning the McDonald's franchise in the 1980s.

Now, he oversees a business empire that includes gambling, car dealerships, resorts and property.

He's now become a household name in the west after buying Welsh soccer club Cardiff City, and then controversially sacking its popular coach.

The BBC's David Ornstein spoke exclusively to him in Kuala Lumpur, and asked if there were still plans to publicly list Cardiff City.
