Whatever the rights and wrongs of Dennis Rodman's relationship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, there's no doubting it's one of the strangest soap operas around - and strangely compelling.

The former basketball player was back in his favourite south Asian holiday destination to put on an exhibition match as part of the Glorious Leader's birthday celebrations. It's thought he turned 31 on 8 January although neither the date nor Kim's age can be confirmed.

That didn't stop Dennis though and he can be seen leading a 'rousing' version of Happy Birthday with an 'ecstatic' crowd that is clearly dressed for an afternoon courtside in their best suits.

What a party!
