British teenager Tommy Boyd hopes to make it as a professional footballer one day - and what better way to kick-start his career than by achieving a Guinness World Records title?
The talented thirteen-year-old recently broke the record for the Fastest time to complete 10 Maradona seven football (soccer) tricks during an event at Henley College in Henley-upon-Thames, UK.
Tommy completed the challenging juggling trick – which was originally made famous by Argentina football legend Diego Maradona and involves moving the ball between the two feet, knees, shoulders and head – in a speedy 29.78 seconds.
He smashed the previous record of 35.47 seconds which was achieved by multiple record-breaking football freestyler John Farnworth (UK) a few months earlier.
“I decided to break the Maradona world record because I’m passionate about my ambition to become a professional footballer,” Tommy told us in his application for the title.

As well as showcasing his impressive skills, the young soccer player also had another reason for attempting a Guinness World Records title:
His grandfather sadly passed away from Leukaemia a year ago, and Tommy wanted to raise money for the blood cancer charity Bloodwise in his memory.
“Always strive for excellence in everything you do. Together we were amazing and I know that my Grandad is so very proud,” he said after the record was confirmed.
