Hollywood star Will Smith gave a group of Brixton schoolchildren a day to remember, when he appeared in front of their morning assembly. Ria Chatterjee reports.
Actor Will Smith offered some words of advice, as he addressed teenagers at a school in Tulse Hill.
This video posted on Youtube - and shot by Will Smith himself - shows school-girls in Lambeth going wild for their Hollywood visitor.
Students from St Martin-in-the-Fields High School tell ITV's Ria Chatterjee that they were astonished to hear that Will Smith would be coming to see them.
The Hollywood star - famous for roles in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Men in Black - met students at St Martin-in-the-Fields High School for Girls in Tulse Hill, doing a question and answer session and signing autographs.
Pupils at St Martins, many of whom are my constituents, had no idea Will Smith was coming to school today. Incredible reception!From @ChukaUmunna on Twitter:
Labour MP Chuka Umunna has given Will Smith a tour of Lambeth today, saying that the Hollywood star wanted to see the "real London".
The pair called into a music venue and a coffee shop in Brixton before taking questions from students at St Martin-in-the-Fields High School for Girls in Tulse Hill.
Read Luol Deng's full letter to the Prime Minister, pleading the case for funding to be returned to British Basketball.
Luol Deng has written to David Cameron after British Basketball discovered last month it will receive zero funding in the run-up to the Rio 2016 Olympics; a cut of £8.5 million compared to the London 2012 cycle.
British Basketball will meet funding quango UK Sport on Wednesday to ask for it to reconsider, and has attracted top-level support from 27 year old Deng, who started his career in Brixton and now plays for the Chicago Bulls. His letter reads:
"We all heard about the 'legacy' that London 2012 was going to bring to sport in the UK and I refuse to sit back and let that legacy be completely demolished for basketball. I, along with other people involved in the game, have put too much in and care too greatly to let this happen."
"The sport of basketball is a pathway, a pathway that teaches so many valuable lessons on and off the court, how are we supposed to motivate these kids to carry along their journey when there's now nothing at the end. No Team GB, no Olympic dream, no goal."
CCTV images released today show the moment before an innocent teenager is murdered, because his killers mistakenly thought he was a member of a rival gang.
Kwame Ofosu-Asare wasn't.
But he was stabbed to death on a housing estate in Brixton.
Today his killers were jailed for life.
Some of you may be upset by some of the images in this report by Piers Hopkirk.
