Six months ago, homeless Tom Brady did not believe he had any kind of future - yet he can now look back on captaining Wales at an international football tournament.
He described leading his country at the Homeless World Cup as "surreal".
Katie Dalton of Cymorth Cymru hopes the legacy of the tournament in Cardiff will be to help end homelessness.
The week-long competition, which attracted about 80,000 fans to Bute Park, has come to an end.
Mexico won both the men's and women's tournaments.
Mr Brady described his life spiralling after he split up with his girlfriend two years ago - "sofa surfing" and struggling to get back on his feet.
