Overcoming Disability - Boy Trains With Barcelona

The Olympics and Paralympics have brought us many stories of people overcoming incredible obstacles to achieve stunning feats. Here is one more that is a real testament to the human spirit and the belief that anyone can achieve anything!

Amazingly an 11-year-old Brazilian boy has earned a place at the Barcelona football team's summer training camp - despite being born without feet.

Gabriel Muniz was initially offered a place at the team's training academy in Saquarema, Rio de Janeiro, after appearing on a popular sports programme in Brazil.

His story and skills inspired the club's managers and he was invited to the team's Spanish camp in September.
