Despite spending most of his time lower down the English football pyramid, AFC Wimbledon’s Adebayo Akinfenwa is fairly well known purely because of his sheer size and unique build for a footballer. He’s an inspirational character with an admirable attitude that plenty of his fellow professionals could learn from.
Sky Sports’ cameras went to meet the man nicknamed ‘The Beast’ recently to watch him train with the Wombles, learn about his workout routine and hear about his experiences in football. It’s interesting to hear how such a big man has defied the odds and silenced his doubters. We salute you, Bayo!
