A fat man is an internet star. Now many people in the world know him. The man's name is Andrew Cassidy and he is 127 kilograms. A group of visitors liked his play with a ball. They filmed him. They put the video on YouTube. The video started to be very popular. It now has two million views. Andrew still can't believe it.

Andrew is very talented. He practices two hours a day. People from his hometown know him very well. Andrew is an internet star now and he could be on a British TV show soon.

Interesting words: view (moment when somebody sees a video), hometown (town where you lived as a child).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
