Henry Fraser lost movement of his arms and most of his body after an accident on holiday in Portugal in 2009. A promising rugby player, Henry is the younger brother of England international Will Fraser.

Since then, the former Saracens youth star has had to focus on other talents, namely his extraordinary ability to paint using only his mouth.

Fraser's latest work focuses on Arsenal legend Thierry Henry's immortalised knee slide after scoring a brilliant solo goal against Tottenham in 2002.

With the brilliant accuracy with which Henry has been able to recreate the iconic celebration, we can't wait to see what he does next.
