24 hours after being released from a deportation centre the London boxer Bilal Fawaz says he has no idea what is going to happen to him next. He's spent nearly a month locked up after being told he must leave the country. He was sent to London when he was 14 after his parents died but was never able to get a UK passport or work visa. Before he was taken to the centre he lived on the floor of the gym where he trains because without a visa he can't earn any money. Now he's back there, saying his life is in limbo, knowing this country doesn't want him - and neither does Nigera - where he was born. Rags Martel went to meet him.
