DID YOU KNOW ?

Henry was born and brought up in the tough neighbourhood of Les Ulis, Essonne - a suburb of Paris - where he played for an array of local sides as a youngster and showed great promise as a goal-scorer.

He is of Antillean heritage: His father, Antoine, is from Guadeloupe and his mother, Maryse, from Martinique.

As a seven-year-old, Henry showed great potential, prompting Claude Chezelle to recruit him to the local club CO Les Ulis. His father pressured him to attend training, although the youngster was not particularly drawn to football.

His footballing style and personality have ensured that he is one of the most commercially marketable footballers in the world; he has been featured in advertisements for Nike, Reebok, Renault, Pepsi and Gillette.

As a fan of the National Basketball Association (NBA), Henry is often seen with his friend Tony Parker at games when not playing football.
