A Belfast dancer who partnered the late football star Paolo Rossi on the Italian version of Strictly Come Dancing is recovering after suffering a stroke during lockdown at the age of 40.

Victoria Martin spoke about her illness after she paid tribute to the hero of Italy's World Cup win in Spain in 1982, who died from an incurable lung disease.

Victoria was sought out by the Italian media to talk about the 64-year-old after his death earlier this month, which caused widespread mourning in the country.
