Daniel Narcisse

Voted World Handball Player of the Year in 2012, Daniel Narcisse is a two-time Olympic champion, who made his first appearance for France as a 20-year-old in January 2000.

In the 16 years between his debut and Rio 2016, he played at four Olympic Games and helping France to three World Championship and three European Championship titles.

Narcisse was named in the tournament all-star team at Beijing 2008 after scoring 35 goals - nine of them in the Quarter-Final win over Russia, as his side beat Iceland to win gold.

He was also in the top 10 goalscorers at both London 2012, when France retained their title, and Rio 2016, when they were beaten in the Final by Denmark.

Known as 'Air France' for his jumping ability, Narcisse won the Champions League in 2010 and 2012, and the 2011 Club World Cup, with German club Kiel.

He returned to France in 2013 to join Paris St-Germain and won the League and Cup double in 2015.
