Liberia President George Weah owes his current status to the beautiful game and he has never abandoned it.
Years after hanging his boots and even after assuming the highest office in the West African country, the 52-year-old still creates time to kick about.
So during one of his state visits to the United Arab Emirates, the former world footballer of the year found time to train with his former club, Al Jazira Club.
But before the training, he had to calm the players down and urge them not to fear or be intimidated by his huge frame.
Weah played for the club between 2002 and 2003.
