Spanish Paralympic swimmer who 'won his blindness'

Enhamed Enhamed was born in the Canary Islands, Spain, and became blind aged eight.

However, he prefers to say he "won" the blindness which led him to win four gold medals in Paralympic swimming in Beijing 2008 and two in Athens in 2004.

His positive mental attitude has seen him lead motivational lectures for companies, schools and other institutions.

Enhamed spoke to the BBC ahead of his appearances at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London.
