Michael Jordan's Chicago Mansion Fails To Sell

NBA legend Michael Jordan's Chicago mansion has failed to sell at auction after bidders did not reach the reserve price.

The nine-bedroom 56,000 sq ft home in the Chicago suburbs had been set at a $13m (8m) reserve price.

Boasting a regulation-size indoor basketball court, 15 full bathrooms, a library, wet bar and the original doors from the Playboy Mansion in Chicago, the sprawling estate was described as a "gentleman's retreat" by Concierge Auctions.

The former Chicago Bulls shooting guard, 50, is downsizing now that his three children are growing up.

The home was previously up for sale for $29m (18m) in 2012.

Mr Jordan now owns the NBA Charlotte Bobcats.
