It’s estimated that when he’s finished, he’ll have taken some 400,000 steps while keeping a football in the air.

Dan is taking on the record-breaking journey from London to Manchester as part of Keep It Up for Soccer Aid 2012.

Since Soccer Aid started in 2006 more than £7 million has been raised for UNICEF’s work for children.

As part if his challenge, he’s been doing keepy uppies along the whole route only stopping to meeting fans, supporters and celebrities along the way.

Dan already holds five world records, but some commentators reckon this could be the toughest one yet.

And his goal? To raise money and awareness for the children UNICEF helps around the world.
