Kevin Sinfield OBE completed his Extra Mile challenge at Headingley Stadium in front of hundreds of fans, players, friends and family and was welcomed back by the man who inspired it all, his friend and former team mate, Rob Burrow MBE.

The challenge saw the former Rhinos captain run 101 miles from Leicester Tigers to the home of Leeds Rhinos in just 24 hours, and the epic fundraising challenge and Sinfield earned overwhelming praise, with supporters from all clubs along with fellow sports stars and even politicians taking to social media to show their respect for Sir Kev.

Sinfield is aiming to raise £100,000 which will be equally split between the MND Association and the appeal to build The Rob Burrow Centre for Motor Neurone Disease in Leeds.
