Olympic gold gives Ugandans new hope

Olympic marathon winner Stephen Kiprotich returns to a hero's welcome on the streets of Kampala.

    Uganda's first gold medallist in 40 years has returned home to promises of better funding for the country's athletes.

    Al Jazeera's Malcolm Webb was there as Stephen Kiprotich got a state reception, and an even warmer welcome on the streets of Kampala.
