Simon Osborn sat in a total of 42,785 seats at his beloved Villa Park.
A man who sat on every seat at a football stadium as part of a charity challenge has described the experience as “agony”.
Aston Villa supporter Simon Osborn, from Middleton Cheney, near Banbury, parked his posterior in a total of 42,785 seats at his beloved Villa Park.
He told the BBC: “I knew it was going to be tough, but there’s tough and there’s tough. It was unbelievable.”
Mr Osborn was raising money for the football club’s Dementia Activity Cafe.
He set himself the challenge of sitting in all the seats in 24 hours, over a period of three days, after coming up with the idea during a tour of the stadium.
It took about seven months to finalise the finer details with the club, and to train for the mammoth sit-a-thon.
