Dan Magness is a UK TV presenter who started out as a football freestyler, performing phenomenal football tricks at events across the world.
Learning his tricks growing up in Guildford UK, Dan refined them and put together an amazing, unrivalled football freestyle display that kept him at the top of the freestyle tree where he remains to this day. He has performed half time shows for many Premiership football clubs and has appeared in TV commercials worldwide alongside some of the world’s biggest names in world football.
In 2009 Dan became the first person in the world to keep a ball in the air for 24 hours without dropping it. This amazing feat was followed a few months later by a gruelling 36 mile walk across London in January 2010, keeping a football up the whole time. In June 2010 he extended his 24 hour record by 2 whole hours, raising the bar for other freestylers to strive towards.
May 2012 saw Dan smashing another record by walking from Wembley Stadium (London) to Old Trafford (Manchester) keeping a ball up the whole time. This gruelling 210 mile journey took him 11 days and burned approximately 8000 calories per day!
Football skills and numerous Guinness World Records aside, Magness is a familiar face on TV screens worldwide after filming commercials, numerous documentaries and more recently, his own TV series, “Football Freestyler”. The second series of “Football Freestyler” included Jimmy Bullard.
