The UCLA men's basketball team flew back to the USA over the weekend without forwards Jalen Hill and Cody Riley and guard LiAngelo Ball, brother of Los Angeles Lakers guard Lonzo Ball.

Xi promised to look into the case and ensure that the players be treated fairly, a USA official told the paper.

President Trump reportedly brought the case up with Xi Jinping during his recent visit to the country.
