To all who saw the young Luis Suarez kicking a ball around the streets of Montevideo, Uruguay, it was clear that he had something special

However, growing up in grinding poverty, he faced many hurdles on the road to success despite his rare talent. Famously, he was forced to turn down the chance to attend a Uruguay youth team training camp because he was unable to afford a new pair of boots.

Instead of being deterred, Luis chased his dreams and he has fought for everything he has achieved. Now regarded as the best striker in the world, his story shows how well resilience and determination can pay off.

His success at Liverpool and FC Barcelona has made him one of the world's most recognisable footballers, and, and as part of Barca's deadly attacking trio along with Messi and Neymar, he is magical to watch.
