Dennis Rodman and Kim Jong-un renew their unlikely friendship during the American's five-day visit to North Korea.

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has returned to North Korea to visit leader Kim Jong-un.

The 52-year-old caused a stir earlier this year when he revealed an unlikely friendship with the ruler, whom he described as "awesome".

According to North Korean news agency KCNA, Rodman embarked on a five-day tour of the country, although it is unclear if they discussed the fate of Kenneth Bae, an American missionary serving 15 years in a labour camp.

The report stated that Kim hosted a dinner for his guest, who said that the 29-year-old "really actually wants to change things" as relations with the United States remain poor.

In February, North Korea carried out a nuclear missile test as a warning to the US.
