Young magician (and table tennis player) Leon Thomson has once again produced the goods with his latest mix of magic and table tennis when he dazzled London 2012 Paralympian, David Wetherill, at the Barnet Table Tennis Centre.

Thomson, who joined the Magic Circle Youth Initiative at the age of 10, has been perfecting his magic on the streets of London, at venues with his dad’s band and at various events across the country including a few you may have seen him at yourself.

The 17-year-old has appeared at the launch of Ping! London 2012, the London 2012 Olympics and the World Championship of Ping Pong 2013 among other high-profile engagements.

His latest trick (featured below) left Team GB’s Wetherill astounded.

He said: “That was ridiculous, that was more ridiculous than my shot. I don’t understand how he did that, I really don’t – it’s amazing.”
