A British man is hoping to set a Guinness World Record by juggling a football 30 miles across London.

Dan Magness, who has been training for his latest record attempt for two months in snowy conditions, must keep the ball in the air at all times as he visits all Premier League grounds in the Capital, reports Sky News.

He sets off from Craven Cottage at 8am and plans to finish at White Hart Lane at around 5:45pm ahead of the Spurs v Fulham game, where he'll be introduced to the crowd at half time.

Magness recently juggled a ball in Covent Garden for 24 hours to become the Guinness World Keepy Uppy Champion.

He will make his journey across London using an Alive and Kicking football.

Alive and Kicking balls are made in Africa for donation to underprivileged children, and are usually distributed in refugee camps, orphanages and schools across Africa to kids who have nothing to play with.

Magness' world record attempt in London will be the first leg of Spirit of Football's epic journey to the World Cup in South Africa.

The Alive and Kicking ball will be shepherded by the Spirit of Football team through Europe and Africa, where it will meet people along the way and be used in exhibition games.

He hopes his ball skills will earn him another world record, and will set the tone for the rest of the Alive and Kicking ball's World Cup journey. (ANI)
