He's now seen as a footballing superstar, a man who played for some of the world's biggest clubs and picked up more caps for Brazil than most, but at one point Roberto Carlos was a young boy with nothing but dreams of soccer success.
In the second part of our fantastic interview series with Roberto, here he speaks to renowned journalist Guillem Balague about what life was like as a youngster in Brazil, and how those experiences made him the player he was to become.
