Adebayor reveals miracle

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has revealed that he was the recipient of a 'football miracle' at the age of four. The Togo international revealed an inspirational story behind his footballing abilities.

"I was in the church, lying down, and a ball came straight into the building and the first person to stand up was me because I wanted to get the ball.

"Everyone started crying: 'Your son is walking because of a football and this means he has the chance to be a footballer. Most of the time when these things happen, it means the boy has football in his blood.' And it worked for me."
