World Cup 2014: Meet Brazil's keepy-uppy champion

Brazilians are famed for their nifty football skills but not many of them can claim to have set a record.

Marcelo Ribeiro da Silva has appeared in the Guinness Book of Records for taking off the greatest number of T-shirts while keeping up the ball.

He can also do 15,000 keepy uppies in two hours and 15 minutes.

He gave the BBC's Ben Brown a flavour of his skills at Copacabana beach.
