Michael Evans in training

Michael Evans, from Sheffield, is part of Great Britain's Special Olympics table tennis team.

He was born with severe autism and struggles with his speech, but through table tennis he's made new friendships and developed new skills.

He trains three days a week at Darnall Road Baptist Church with coach Shaun Alvey, who runs Inclusive Ping Pong.

Before he left for the Middle East, Chris Dawkes went to meet Michael.
