Messi draws disabled children to sport

Football star inspires many disabled children in Argentina to take up new sport - powerchair football.

    Using a wheelchair may be viewed by some as an end to an active life.

    But that is not how some children in the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires see their disabilities.

    And the recent backing of football star Lionel Messi has played a big part in changing attitudes.
