China's richest man says Britain is best place to invest

China's richest man has said he considers the UK to be the best place in the world to invest.

Wang Jianlin, chair of China's largest property firm, Dalian Wanda, said the UK had one of the most open markets and that investment was not subject to the same scrutiny as elsewhere.

Mr Wang told the BBC's chief business correspondent Linda Yueh that he was looking to invest $1bn (£667m) in the UK entertainment industry.

He is also considering buying an English or Italian football club.
