LOSING HIS ARMS in an accident as a child hasn’t stopped Ibrahim Hamato from realising his dream to become an elite table-tennis player.

The Egyptian taught himself how to hold the bat in his mouth and in this inspiring film is shown playing against the world number two, Ma Long.

Incredible stuff.
