During Somalia's civil war, Abdifatah Dhuhulow sustained a wound that led to his leg being amputated some years later. Remarkably, the loss of a limb helped Dhuhulow, who came to Britain as a refugee, discover a talent for long-distance running. In 2008, he completed the London marathon in just over three hours.

On a grey day in London's Hyde Park, the 31-year-old talked to Thomson Reuters Foundation about his love of running and his determination to do something for Africa's neglected amputees.
