Meet 16-year-old football referee Raphael.

He’s taking Zambian football by storm after refereeing a friendly match between professional sides Zesco United and Forest Rangers.

He has been refereeing matches since the age of 13.

Raphael told the BBC that at first he wanted to be player but an ankle injury he suffered three years ago stopped his plans and he turned to refereeing instead.
