Cameroon-born basketball star Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers says he's become an American citizen.
The NBA scoring champion and all-star center says his family played a key role in his decision. The 28-year-old Embiid also has French citizenship.
Sonny will have more on Embiid on Friday's show. Also on the program, "The Energetic" Andy Edwards has a preview of Sunday's London Marathon, and VOA's Gwen Outen has a preview of Sunday's Singapore Grand Prix Formula One race.
