Brazilian TV personality Luciano Huck brought a guest to the national team's training session on Thursday — 17-year-old Leonardo Marques Tome, who suffers from arthrogryposis. The team gathered around Leonardo and listened intently as he read a letter about his life and his love of football. His words clearly had an impact on the players, even moving Neymar to tears.
After the training session ended, the always personable David Luiz spent a bit more time with Leonardo, watching him juggle a ball after getting out of his wheelchair and sitting on the pitch.
