Before the Barça v Celtic match, Sandro Rosell had a very special meeting in the presidential lobby with young Gabriel, the Brazilian child who was born without feet, and who took part in an FCBCampus last summer. His amazing story was widely covered by the media, especially in his native Brazil.

FCBEscola invited the child to Barcelona and the activities included the chance to watch Tuesday night’s Champions League game with Glasgow Celtic. Accompanied by his mother, his dream came true when he got to watch his hero Leo Messi in action. Shortly before kickoff, he met Rosell, who presented him with a shirt with his name on and a ball.
