Dennis Rodman has been coaching young basketball players in North Korea, as part of a plan to bring 12 ex-NBA stars to the country for a game.

The match is scheduled to take place in January to mark leader Kim Jong-un's birthday.

Rodman said his plan is still on track despite the recent execution of Kim's uncle - a move described as the biggest shake-up since the death of ex-ruler Kim Jong-il two years ago.

He said: "I understand what's going on with the political stuff. I don't go into that venture."
