Meeting Mahmoud Sarsak

Palestinian international Mahmoud Sarsak was arrested on the way to training with Balata Youth, his West bank side. He was deemed an "unlawful combatant" and began three years' detention without formal charge or trial.

A three month hunger strike in 2012 eventually led to his release. Meeting him really put a day of Ramadan fasting into perspective. ‪#‎footballcaninspirechange
