Blind 9-year-old fan knows his soccer heroes by touch3/10/2013
Blind since birth, Mamadou Limane's allegiance to Barcelona's soccer team has been forged from listening to matches on the radio. And he clearly hangs on every word — the 9-year-old fan had little trouble picking out his Barca faves just from over-the-air descriptions when the team arranged for him to attend a training session. It took only a brief touch of the face or rub of the head for Mamadou to identify Carlos Puyol, Eric Abidal and superstar Lionel Messi, and if he struggled a bit with the braids of Pinto, it's because the backup goalie rarely plays. In any case, everyone little Limane touched seemed to have a soft spot for the little guy, and we don't blame them. [Source]
