Farnworth has dazzled stars of world football including Neymar and Juan Mata with his incredible ball skills in the past – but this marked his first attempt at a popcorn-based stunt.

He performed his amazing effort last night in front of hundreds of football fans at Showcase Cinema de Lux Bluewater before England’s final group game against Belgium.

The stunt celebrated Showcase Cinemas screening all of the World Cup games this summer, including the build-up and post-match analysis in high-definition and surround sound across its 21 sites.

Mark Barlow, General Manager of Showcase Cinemas UK, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to bring even more action to the Showcase Cinema screens, as England take another step towards World Cup glory.

“We’ve had a fantastic turnout so far for the tournament’s group stages and can only imagine the twists and turns still to come during the knockout stages and beyond.

“We welcome everyone to witness England bring it home this summer at their local Showcase Cinema, and watch the Three Lions in the luxury of our cinemas for free.”

Described as a pioneer, John Farnworth has transformed the freestyling football world as he uses fancy footwork to control the ball – and the crowds that watch his performances.

John holds an incredible eight Guinness World Records and has even juggled a football around the entire route of the London Marathon, and battled blizzard conditions on treacherous Mount Everest as he did keepy-ups on the side of the world’s highest mountain.

He said: “Swapping a match-sized ball for popcorn was more challenging than I’d anticipated, but I’m thrilled to have set the ‘world’s first’ record for kicking popcorn into the mouth.
