Man walks 56 days with football on his head

London: A man named Juan Marquez Nieto walked for 56 days, completing a 1240-mile trek with a football balanced on his head with a demand to end violence in Mexico.

Nieto, who had previously made into Guinness Book of Records in June 2011 by walking with a ball on his head for 7 and a half miles during an hour and 50 minutes, had walked across from the tourist resort of Playa del Carmen all the way to Mexico City, for the good cause.

The sports advisor, who covered around 38 miles a day during his incredible feat, had begun his journey on November 23, 2014, and travelled through 9 states on his way to Mexico City with a masseur and support van for company.

Nieto had the support of civilian organisations who too are demanding justice for the 43 students kidnapped and massacred last September.

After completing his goal Nieto encouraged people to be evolutionary instead of revolutionary, and make living leave in peace and harmony possible for the sake of children of Mexico.
