BBC Sport - Get Inspired: Lloyd Francis uses football to battle learning disabilities

The beautiful game: A life changer

Lloyd Francis has learning disabilities and through his football team RCT Tigers, a club specifically for youngsters with learning disabilities, he has learned to change his life.

He is now the head coach at the club and is determined to help everyone have a great time playing the "best game in the world."

"It's completely changed everything about him," says Lloyd's mother Lisa.

"You couldn't have a conversation with Lloyd before, he wouldn't look at you. So to see him standing there now taking team talks it's amazing, absolutely life-changing."
