The owner of the Los Angeles Clippers professional basketball team has been banned from the National Basketball Association for life after a recording emerged of him making racist remarks.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Donald Sterling would be forced to sell his interest in the team.

And the league will fine him 2.5 million pounds, the maximum allowed.

Sterling was recorded asking a woman not to associate in public with black people nor bring them to games.

The fine will be donated to organisations focused on combating racism.
