Amazing Life

By Joe McFarlane


A skilled freestyle footballer blew the minds of watching children by involving them in a simple but mesmerising trick where she spun a ball.

While visiting Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Mélody Donchet wowed a group of curious children by simply spinning a ball on her finger.

Passing the spinning ball to an adorable little girl holding a pen, the crowd went wild in amazement, especially when Mélody lifted the little girl high into the air like a champion.

Mélody said: “I just wanted to show one trick to this little girl.

“She was so cute and willing to learn.”

The 29-year-old became a freestyle footballer back in 2008, after suffering a serious knee injury and since then, she has travelled the world performing her unique skills for a variety of audiences.
