7:29 am on 29 April 2014

The American basketball great Magic Johnson says Donald Sterling, the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, should be stripped of the NBA team immediately.

The NBA says it will make an announcement tomorrow about its investigation into Sterling's alleged racist comments that have sparked widespread outrage in the United States.

The alleged comments, which include telling a woman not to bring African-Americans to Clippers games, have drawn widespread criticism.

Johnson was personally targeted in Sterling's alleged rant and the five-time NBA champion says the Clippers owner must go.
