Basketball star Dennis Rodman: Kim Jong-un is ‘awesome’

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un had a big chap by his side at a basketball game.

Kim was joined courtside by 6ft 7in former NBA star Dennis Rodman for a Harlem Globetrotters exhibition match in the capital of his secretive country, Pyongyang.

Thousands of North Koreans bussed in for the occasion watched a team of local players take on their American visitors.

Dennis Rodman, was taking part in a documentary on the exhibition team, wore a dark coloured  suit with sunglasses, nose rings and facial jewellery ,which are banned in the DPRK.

The  former Big Brother star joked with Kim, a big fan of the sport, and his wife Ri Sol-Ju.

Kim and Rodman even shared a hug.

This visit may cause anger amongst  Americans because North Korea remains strongly anti-US.

Google boss Eric Schmidt visited in January but could  not get a meeting with Kim.

However the US State Department refused to endorse Mr Rodman’s trip.
