Gladiator, Russell Crowe and Michael Jackson.
Do you like reading?
I read a lot whenever I get enough time. A Game of Thrones by George R R Martin was the last book I read.

I took Arabic classes in the US. Arabic literature is a little tough, but I’m trying to read some books.
Your favourite Qatari football team
I’m an Al Rayyan fan. They’re a good side with a lot of quality players.
