Chinese-Canadian pop star Kris Wu has been jailed for 13 years after being found guilty of sex crimes.

A court in Beijing convicted the 32-year-old singer and actor of raping three women and assembling a crowd to engage in an orgy.

He was arrested last year after being accused of date-rape by a student, before 24 more victims spoke out.

The court said he would be deported - although deportations in China usually take place after sentences are served.
