Polio survivors play skate football on the streets of Ghana

On the streets of Accra, Ghana, many polio survivors can be seen begging at traffic lights, unable to find any other work.

But on a Sunday morning many of them gather to represent the Rolling Rockets, who are a local team promoting the sport of skate soccer.

It is an exciting fast paced game, that the team's coach hopes will one day be chosen as a Paralympic sport.

The BBC went to meet the team and to find out how the sport has helped to change lives.
