Twenty-five-year-old Ben Kelly from Watford has been competing for Team GB in the 11-a-side football competition at the Special Olympics in Los Angeles, USA.

For Ben, who has a learning difficulty and always wanted to play for his country, this has been a dream come true.

Coach Elaine McKenna said that getting into the finals at the Olympics was more than they could have hoped for.

"We've done all we can now, they've eaten well, slept well, warmed up well. It's all down to this match now."

Watch to see how the team got on.
