And the youngster, from Johnstone, proved it when she joined Harlem Globetrotter's Dizzy Grant and Handles Franklin and helped them spin a ball.

They were all at Silverburn shopping centre to promote the Harlem Globetrotters 2014 UK Arena Tour, which includes a date at Hydro on April 16.

Putting on displays of their ball handing and teaching fans how to perform tricks, including the infamous 'ball spinning' is part of the show.

The team is also taking a slice of home to US troops based overseas with a tour of US military bases - the 12th time in 10 years the "Ambassadors of Goodwill" have entertained US troops overseas.

The 12-game tour, starting this week, will feature shows on US bases in the UK, Germany, Italy, Greece and Spain.
