Four years ago, we were first introduced to Carlos, the blind-deaf Brazil supporter who was able to ‘watch’ his first eve World Cup thanks to an ingenious commentary system rigged up by his interpreter.

Using a hand-made miniature football pitch, Carlos’ signers are able to describe the match action to him by manipulating his hands to mirror the action on screen and using various relative prompts, both physical and aural.

As such, the young supporter has once again able to cheer on the Selecao at the World Cup this summer, including Philippe Countinho’s breakthrough strike against Costa Rica last week.

Indeed, here’s the moment that Carlos was able to celebrate Coutinho’s match-turning goal just as loudly and passionately as the rest of his fellow countrymen, even using a drum to seal the deal!
