US basketball star detained in Russia asks Biden for help

Brittney Griner, the American basketball superstar detained in Russia, has written to US President Joe Biden pleading for help.

Ms Griner has been held for over four months on what Russia says are drug charges.

In the letter, which arrived on Monday, she wrote about her fear that she might never return to US soil.

Government officials confirmed they received communication from the Phoenix Mercury player.

"President Biden has been clear about the need to see all US nationals who are held hostage or wrongfully detained abroad released, including Brittney Griner," said a spokeswoman from the National Security Council on Monday.

US authorities also reiterated that they are working "aggressively - using every available means - to bring her home".
