‘Speedo Mick’ smashed his initial £100,000 target by raising more than £315,000 for community projects for disadvantaged young people.

He was also welcomed at the finish line, on the south-western tip of Cornwall, by a message from one of his Goodison Park heroes, the club’s current assistant manager Duncan Ferguson.

He said: “Well done Speedo. I heard you’ve finished your walk to Land’s End – fantastic mate. I hope you’ve not too many blisters and I hope you’ve not got pneumonia as well.

“I tell you what pal, you’ve done a fantastic job – well done, we’re all proud of you pal. Congratulations – love, Dunc.”
