His trademark “skyhook” shot was unstoppable, and throughout his basketball career Kareem Abdul Jabbar set record after record, becoming the highest points scorer in NBA history.

Always the tallest kid in class, his first love was baseball, but once his basketball skills were recognised there was no turning back.

A successful college basketball career was followed by 20 years as a professional in the NBA, during which he won six championships and six Most Valuable Player awards.

Since retiring from basketball, he has focused on writing and is also a sought-after motivational speaker.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar speaks to Riz Khan about his love of the game, conversion to Islam, and the defining moments in his life.
