I'm quite surprised it has had so little coverage... they mentioned it on the One Show this evening because he crossed the finish line while they were on air.

He was on the one show a few weeks ago to publicise the marathon attempt where they showed the accident that did the damage.

He's also on twitter.

Agree his wife is amazing.

That's amazing!

I used to adore Eddie Kidd. He signed my arm once, when I was 14 and I seriously considered getting it tattooed. grin

Thanks for sharing headfairy.

Wonderful. Heard this on The One Show earlier. Agree Riveninside What an achievement, I would have expected much more coverage of this.

He is my new hero.

It did it for 'Children with Luekemia'

I love him.

Do you know he has just had his care package slashed and is living on benefits?

I expect they will stop his DLA now he can walk 26 miles.

He's on 10 o'clock news
