World's top football freestylers compete in Italy


Football freestylers from 53 countries have been showing off their skills at the Street Style 2012 world final in Lecce, Italy.

A 15,000 strong crowd saw Japan's Kotaro Tokuda put on a dazzling display of ball juggling to clinch the world freestyle soccer title in the city's Roman amphitheatre.

Competitors had three minutes to impress the panel of five judges, which included former Italy internationals Fabio Cannavaro and Filippo Inzaghi.
