A 127-kilogram footballer from South Wales has become an international internet celebrity after he was secretly filmed. A group of visitors were very surprised when they saw Andrew Cassidy kicking a ball. They decided to film him and post the video on YouTube. The clip became popular and it now has over two million views. It's something what the 50-year-old man is still trying to live with.

Andrew is very talented. He now practices two hours a day and is already well-known in his hometown. Andrew is an internet star. He may soon perform in front of the Britain's Got Talent judges.

Interesting words: post (publish), perform (be on stage).

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