John Farnworth (UK) has built up a reputation as one of the world’s greatest football freestylers.
 
 
The Lancashire-born keepy-up king has held both the world and European Football Freestyle champion titles and has a string of Guinness World Records soccer skill titles under his belt.

Recently, John was a guest at the Guinness World Records Family Blogger event in London.

John had held the record on two occasions previously, but had lost the title to Turkey’s Sinan Öztürk, who managed to notch up 144 touches back in November 2013.
 
John manages to break that mark by some distance and wins the record with an incredible 154 touches.
