Colin Kaepernick

US President Donald Trump says he would "love to see" Colin Kaepernick play in the NFL again "if he's good enough".
Kaepernick has been without a team since opting out of his San Francisco 49ers contract in March 2017.
In 2016 he began kneeling for the national anthem in protest against racial injustice in the USA, with other players following suit, leading to criticism from Trump.
Earlier this week, Kaepernick said he was "still ready" to play in the NFL.
"I'd love to see Kaepernick come in - if he's good enough," said Trump.
"But I don't want to see him come in because somebody thinks it's a good PR move. If he's good enough, he will be in.
"I know the owners, I know [New England Patriots owner] Bob Kraft, I know so many of the owners. If he's good enough, they'd sign him.
"So if he's good enough, they would sign him in a heartbeat. They will do anything they can to win games."
On Wednesday, Kaepernick posted a video on his social media accounts of himself working out in a gym, saying: "5am. 5 days a week. For 3 years. Still Ready."
