Franny finishes Benali's Big Run, and gets a hero's reception (video)

After running over 1,000 miles, averaging 40-50 each day, burning 85,000 calories, and visiting every ground in the Premier League, Francis Benali has finally completed Benali’s Big Run.

The legendary Southampton FC defender started his huge challenge at Newcastle United’s Saint James’ Park, and finished at St Mary’s stadium when his old club hammered the geordies in a 4-0 win.
Franny ran onto the pitch at half time and gave an emotional speech, getting a rousing reception from both sets of fans.
He’s done this mammoth journey all in the name of Cancer Research, and has (so far) raised almost £130,000.
Franny truly is a hero.
