13 Year-Old Made Honorary Member Of Fulham Football Club's First-Team Squad

Thirteen-year-old football fan Rhys Porter, who was abused online because of his disability, has been made an honorary member of Fulham Football Club's first-team squad. Porter, who has cerebral palsy and epilepsy, had been invited to train with the team. He posted some videos of his saves on social media and received vile abuse. One of Porter's heroes, Tim Ream, said about him, "People see footballers as role models and inspirations. For me, what he is doing is more of an inspiration that anything any of us could ever do." After calling out the abuse, Porter turned his energy into raising funds for a disability charity. (BBC)
