A world-record football freestyler from Kingsbury is set to complete 10 laps of ‘keepy-uppies’ at the football grounds of Arsenal for charity.
Matt Wolstenholme, who holds the record for juggling the longest ever distance of 20km with a football, plans to carry out the challenge at the Emirates Stadium in aid of the Arsenal Foundation.
The 32-year-old will juggle with a ball without using his hands for the whole 6.4km of the club’s ‘Be a Gunner. Be a Runner’ fun run, on April 11.
An avid Arsenal fan, he has previously completed a lap of Wembley Stadium doing keepy-uppies - while walking backwards.
Mr Wolstenholme, a fitness trainer and journalist, said: “I’ve done some weird and wonderful keepy-uppy challenges in the past, but this one will be a tough one because I’ll be surrounded by other people.

“In the past I’ve had plenty of space to myself.
“Hopefully nobody will give me a bump and I’ll get round the course smoothly. I’m estimating it’ll take me about an hour and a half. As an Arsenal fan it’ll be an honour to do this at the Emirates and raise money for a worthy cause.”
