The Family with Six Fingers


The Da Silva family from Brazil have all been born with six fingers on each hand which gives them an advantage as goalkeepers or musicians.

It makes it easier to strum guitars, play the piano and coming from Brazil – a country where football is the most popular sport – makes the position of goalkeeper seem a cinch.

Members of the Da Silva family were born with more fingers than the rest of us and instead of five digits on each hand they have six.
