"I’ve known Leo from a very young age. When he was coming through the youth squad there was something different. He never talked to anybody. He would just practice on making himself better. I asked him, ‘Your very shy aren’t you Leo’ , he looked at me and said, ‘I’m not shy, I’m just dedicated’ I’ll never forget that day, and I will never forget meeting him"
