A Mansfield Guinness World Record holder has dedicated his certificate to a young teacher who tragically died in March this year.

Father-of-two David Wileman (41) knocked out 77 press-ups wearing a 40lb backpack in front of a live assembly audience of 500 children at Mansfield’s St Philip Neri Primary School, including his two children, last year.

David said he had been saddened by the news that Hannah Gamage, a reception teacher who had watched his attempt, had died of bowel cancer and hoped the certificate would serve as a memorial to the 26-year-old.
