In one of Barcelona's numerous community projects, a young blind boy named Mamadou was recently given the opportunity to meet several of his heroes at the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper (the club's training ground).

Incredibly, he is able to recognize Carles Puyol, Eric Abidal and Lionel Messi by touch alone. Only Jose Pinto's braids confused the Senegalese youngster, but seeing as the goalkeeper is not a first-team regular who doesn't always opt for that particular hairstyle, it is quite forgivable!

You probably won't find a football-related clip that pulls on your heartstrings harder than this today.

The boy was so funny, he makes people wanna hug him Very Happy Nice to see such actions from Barcelona, it's something unique to make a kid happy in his condition.. we can learn a lesson from both barca and the kid, he enjoys life, something we often fail to do ..
