Video: Welsh man has incredible ability to juggle a soccer ball

Andrew Cassidy has some major skills when it comes to juggling a soccer ball.

The 50-year-old native of Wales has gained instant internet fame after the above video of him cleverly manipulating a ball has went viral.

Cassidy, a former fisherman, said he took up his soccer skill as a way to lose weight and to take his mind off the death of a close friend.

Despite his new found stardom, Cassidy has continued to remain humble.

“All the kids come up to me and say 'Oh that's amazing' but as far as I'm concerned it's just repetition of kicking a ball."

Cassidy also added that he's a bit overwhelmed by the attention and that he has yet to actually see the video of himself on YouTube.

"It's a bit over the top of my head really, it's all happened in just over a day, my head has been in a spin with it. I only had two hours sleep last night because I couldn't get to sleep thinking about what's happened in the last day. I haven't even seen myself on YouTube yet so that will be something for me to see."

The organizers of the World Freestyle Football Championships are so impressed with Cassidy's unique ability that they have invited him to perform at the event's opening ceremony in Dubai.
