Messi draws disabled children to sport

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

    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.
