YOUNG footballers hoping to become the next Cristiano Ronaldo can find out exactly how he manages to score so many goals from free kicks - thanks to a Taunton teenager.

Cameron Corp has taken to social media to show some of the techniques that have helped convert the Real Madrid star into one of the greatest players of all time.

Cameron, aged 19, shook off the disappointment of being forced to give up football for Bishops Lydeard three years ago due to diabetes that produced painful cramps in his legs.

Cameron Corp.

He decided to film a video at Castle Sports Centre, in Taunton, where he used to train, and Power and Precision, dedicated to the art of the successful free kick, has become a sensation on YouTube.

His YouTube channel - click here - now has 25,000 followers, while he boasts 200,000 followers across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Cameron, a 1610 activity leader at the sports centre, has also been signed up by Adidas, New Balance and Nike to review football products, as well as attracting advertising from a number of companies.

He said: "I've loved working with 1610 and the team at Castle have been very supportive of me and I would like to develop a future with them in the sports industry as well as launching other sports training programmes which would focus on improving agility and a wide range of skills.

"I have learned a great deal working with companies on social media and hope to build on that success with further projects.

"I enjoy working with the kids on the activity schemes, its great fun and very rewarding but they have no idea that I engage with a whole other audience and the social media world, which may surprise them rather a lot."
