Zimbabwe's breakdance king who uses a wheelchair

When Zimbabwean Blessing Fire was born, he was told by doctors he would never be able to walk like a "normal child", but no-one said anything about breakdancing.

He uses crutches or a wheelchair to move long distances but is able to walk.

His brother's gymnastics inspired him to take up breakdancing and now he dances in an award-winning crew.
