He only slept in a bed twice — in a hotel and a cave — catching up by napping on pre-booked flights, in terminals and cabs.

Simon took only a small bag containing undies, two tee-shirts, tracksuit bottoms and camera gear and lived off airline meals and snacks.

He set out from Manchester Airport on a Sunday at 4.45am, taking a flight to Rome to see the Colosseum.

He stayed two hours then flew to Egypt — grabbing five hours in a hotel before taking a taxi to see the Pyramids and the Sphinx.

Finally, he jetted to Rio de Janeiro, via Panama, to see the statue of Christ the Redeemer. When he arrived, it was 1.48pm on Saturday in the UK.

Simon said: “There were so many things that could go wrong but if I never tried it I would never know if it could be done.

“It meant in and out of the airport, getting to the wonder and dashing back.

“I genuinely can’t believe I pulled it off.”
