Artist Henry Fraser's latest painting will appear on the cover of The Times' rugby world cup supplement, The Scrum – a piece of work he created using only his mouth.

While on holiday in Portugal in 2009, Fraser suffered an accident, which resulted in him being paralysed from the neck down, but this hasn't stopped him pushing himself and achieving his goals.

This piece is the latest in a range of works by Fraser, which includes stunning pictures of other sports stars such as Usain Bolt, Jessica Ennis and Andy Murray.
