Customers at a bar in Manchester were given a surprise show by global freestyle champion, John Farnworth, earlier this week.

Catching the locals unawares, the trickster burst into Yates Manchester Printworks and showed off his fancy footwork to help build the excitement ahead of the Euros, which kick off this weekend.

Five times Guinness World Record holder, John, displayed everything from impressive keepy-uppys on the bar to headers and tricks from the upper level balcony; with patrons being invited to join in and create what was undoubtedly a lunch break to remember!

Vince Williams, Head of Marketing at Yates, said: “The Euros is one of the biggest sporting events of the year and we wanted to get our customers into the spirit with an impromptu performance from John. It was great to see so many people get involved and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back when the tournament begins. Whatever team you support, the Euros is set to be one of the most exciting tournaments yet and you can catch all the action at your local Yates.”
