#dizzygoals: Action star Akshay Kumar just ran round a football…for a good cause.

‘Brothers’ star Akshay Kumar has become the first Indian celeb to back the ‘Dizzy Goals’ challenge in support of a major campaign to raise awareness of the new Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

Launching next month at the UN General Assembly in the presence of 193 world leaders, the Global Goals are more than a dozen ambitious targets including ending poverty, providing quality education, abolishing gender inequality, improving the provision of renewable energy as well as tackling climate change.

The ‘Dizzy Goals’ is a parallel initiative aimed at drumming up support for the Global Goals and has already received the backing of football icons such as Real Madrid star Gareth Bale and England legends Gary Linaker and Alan Shearer.

The challenge involves well-known personalities running around a ball until they’re dizzy and then attempting to score a goal.

Akshay Kumar took up the hilarious challenge in Houston, USA during rehearsals for a music concert which marks the actor’s 25th year in Bollywood.

Kumar is well known for his stay-fit lifestyle and pushing himself to the limit of physical endurance but this was something else.


The Global Goals campaign, aims to make the Global Goals the most famous Goals on the planet by sharing them with 7 billion people in 7 days from the moment they are adopted.

Here’s the 100 million euro Welsh star Gareth Bale faring slightly better than Akshay:
