A talented one-legged footballer became an overnight online celebrity in China after a video showcasing his awesome ball-handling skills went viral on social media.
In the widely shared clip, 21-year-old He Yiyi can be seen doing fancy moves, gracefully making goals while aided with a pair of crutches against able-bodied competitors during an exhibition match held on Nov. 12 in Shenzhen, China.
Yiyi, who lost his left leg to bone cancer when he was 12 years old, was dubbed by his fans as “Angel with Broken Wings”, “Ball King with One Leg” and “Magic Boy”.
According to the Times of India, the talented footballer from southern China’s Guangdong Province has already shown promise at a very young age.
As a boy, he always dreamed of becoming a football star in China, and began training more than 10 years ago at his school in the city of Shanwei. He played at the school for about two years and was eventually hand-picked to join the Shenzhen Youth Team at age 9.
He had a shot at becoming a professional footballer in France after a French scout expressed interest in his talent before he was diagnosed with the disease in 2009.
To save his life, doctors were forced to amputate his leg after it was found that he had a rare type of bone cancer called osteosarcoma.
“I spent one year and four months in the hospital,” Yiyi told MailOnline. “That was the darkest period of my life.”
