The guy's name is Iya Traoré, and he's from Guinea. Iya in pictures. He has been deleted twice from Wikipedia for being non-notable. He was briefly signed to PSG but they let the contract lapse; apparently he spent more time juggling than playing.

I figure he'd sign with Cirque du Soleil...seems like a better fit.

17 minutes from "here's a video of an awesome (and apparently random) street juggler," to "this is the guy, and here's some specific info about him."
Very impressive, brokkr!

Football needs its own set of Harlem Globetrotters. I'd pay to see them.

It's like, how many more shirts can he remove? And the answer is none. None more shirts.

Is there a nice german word for something that is astounding, clearly hard to do, but still pretty boring and disinteresting?
