In a tough endurance task, John Farnsworth juggled a football for over 50 Miles to create a world record and also raise funds for Cancer Research UK.
Cancer Research UK tweeted just before the start of the attempt.
Best of luck to CBBC presenter @johnfarnworth, who starts his world record attempt today – crossing frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia, while doing constant keepy-uppies and raising money for our work! Thanks for the support, John – we can’t wait to see how you get on ❄️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/rxeeYARiwf— Cancer Research UK (@CR_UK) March 6, 2020
John went on over 2 days to break the record. He juggled the football performing “keepie uppies” with his feet, legs, knees, headand chest. He also set a record by doing 3 miles in an hour.
John said his task was inspired by his friendship with AJ Foster, 36, who was diagnosed with lymphoma three years ago.
In a facebook post he called this “the hardest 48 hour period I’ve experienced”
