WATCH: Deaf and blind man still manages to enjoy World Cup games

A video clip which has gone right round the world within just a few hours shows the strong friendship existing between two Colombian men.

At the age of nine years Jose Richard Gallego lost his hearing and sight following a rare disease, but his disability does not stop him from enjoying the World Cup games.

With the help of his friend Cesar Daza, who has taken on the role of interpreter, Gallego manages to experience all the emotions and action of the games.

Cesar has learnt sign language in order to be able to communicate with Gallego.

And needless to say, Gallego is giving all his support to the Colombian team.
