Deng on letter to Prime Minister

Britain's top basketball player Luol Deng explains his reasons for writing a letter to Prime Minister David Cameron after the sport's Olympics funding was cut.

Basketball will receive no money for Rio 2016 - a cut of £8.5m from the London 2012 cycle, and Deng says the news is a "huge step backwards" for the sport.

Deng - who was born in Sudan but became a British citizen seven years ago after going to school in Croydon, south London - was the star name in the Team GB side that was knocked out in the group stage at London 2012.
