Actor Michael Sheen described the opening of the Homeless World Cup as “hugely emotional” as the tournament kicked off in Cardiff.

The competition sees people who have experienced social exclusion such as homelessness represent their countries in 4 v 4 games, and Sheen played a big part bringing it to Wales.
