Marcello met all of the students individually who attend the charity education centre on Marwick Road in March.

He posed for photographs before giving a few words of advice on how dedication and commitment to sport can make a positive impact on life, no matter what anyone’s ability may be.

Marcello, who brought along his newly won title belt, said: “I was very privileged to be invited to FACET. It was really lovely to see so many people with smiles on their faces and have some photos taken, hopefully they enjoyed the day as much as I did.”

FACET manager Kris Harrold said: “Marcello has a great story of finding success after overcoming a lot of things in his life.
