Africa's Superstar Gladiators

Channel 4: Unreported World

Reporter Seyi Rhodes and Director Jessica Kelly are in Senegal to explore the national obsession with competitive wrestling. It’s one of Senegal’s fastest growing sports and offers young men the opportunity to earn big money in a country battling poverty and unemployment. 

Unreported World meets some of the superstar wrestlers treated like Gods and worshipped by entire neighbourhoods, as well as up and coming fighters pushing their bodies to the limits in the hope of making enough money to support their families.
