Male rape survivor: 'I just wanted to die'

Sam Thompson was raped by two men after getting separated from his girlfriend during a night out in Manchester in 2016.

He's retelling his story, following the conviction of Reynhard Sinaga, who was jailed for life for 136 rapes.

Sam - who was not assaulted by Sinaga - hopes to challenge the stigma around male rape.

He was talking to BBC Breakfast.
