Tanzania's wheelchair tennis ace

Juma Mohammed Hamisi lost his leg in a bus accident - and at the time he thought he had lost all hope of having a successful future.

But now he has found new purpose in playing for Tanzania's junior wheelchair tennis national team.

The team is ranked number one in East Africa and qualified for the wheelchair Tennis World Cup in Italy, but didn't go as the team members couldn't afford the visas.
