Following his inclusion on that coveted list, Sanches began attracting a lot of attention from the mainstream media and was invited to appear on Legends of Gaming Brazil in 2015. The next year, he appeared on TV Globo's Zero1 program, which was presented by Tiago Leifert, a well-known Brazilian journalist.
