Leonardo Marques Tome, a 17-year-old who was born with arthrogryposis, stopped by their session to read the players a letter about his story, and show off his juggling skills.
Not only was David Luiz very clearly impressed with the boy’s skills, the letter read to the team even brought Neymar to tears.

It’s not as if Brazil needed any more motivation in this summer’s tournament, but this brave youngster surely has them pushing just a little bit harder.
