Gabriel Muniz was initially offered a place at Barcelona's vacation training camp in Saquarema, Rio de Janeiro, after appearing on a sports programme in Brazil.

Coaches and players alike were amazed that Gabriel has plenty of skill and tricks despite such an obvious handicap.

And he was subsequently invited to the team's Spanish camp in September to meet his biggest idol Lionel Messi.
