    Let someone do someting

    Hi everyone. I don't know how to report ''let him/her/them do something...''. Can you give me detailed information about it?

    'Let your brother use your bike.' Mum told me.
    Mum told me to let my brother use my bike.

    'Let him hire my TV, if he wants to watch football.' My neighbour said. Can you change it into indirect sentence?
