Washington D.C. [U.S.A.], Nov 16 (ANI): The UCLA basketball trio, who was arrested in China for shoplifting, has come out to admit of stealing and said they were 'extremely sorry' for the incident.

While speaking to media, LiAngelo Ball along with Cody Riley and Jalen Hill has confessed that they shoplifted things from not just Louis Vuitton but many other showrooms, reported TMZ.

"I'm sorry for stealing from the stores in China," Ball said.

The players also thanked US President Donald Trump who saved them from imprisonment and helped to get back home from China.

But the President seemed half satisfied with their 'thank you' and has asked the guys to also thank his Chinese counterpart.

POTUS tweeted, ""To the three UCLA basketball players I say: You're welcome, go out and give a big Thank You to President Xi Jinping of China who made your release possible and, HAVE A GREAT LIFE!" (ANI)
