Blind Paul Matheson becomes an FA assistant coach

A football fan who lost his sight is back involved in the game as the Football Association's first blind assistant coach.

Newcastle United supporter Paul Matheson began to lose his sight about a decade ago and aggressive glaucoma eventually took away his vision completely.

He thought he would never be able to play or be involved in football again.
