Dennis Rodman: 'North Korea leader Kim Jong-un is awesome'

Former Chicago Bulls basketball player Dennis Rodman says that North Korea leader Kim Jong-un is "really awesome".

Former NBA star Dennis Rodman has claimed that North Korea leader Kim Jong-un is "really awesome" following his trip to Pyongyang.

The former Chicago Bulls forward made the controversial trip to the country just two weeks after North Korea conducted a nuclear test as a warning to the United States.

Rodman and the young leader watched the Harlem Globetrotters play during the American's visit, as well as dining on sushi.

"Guess what, his grandfather, and his father were great leaders, and he's such a proud man," The Telegraph quotes Rodman as saying.

Rodman is the most high-profile American to meet Kim Jong-un since he was brought into power in December 2011.
