Irish Independent/Independent.ie sports writer Michael Verney has successfully completed his attempt to do 1,000 push-ups in one hour to raise funds for the #DoItForDan campaign and PPE for our frontline HSE staff.

Having already raised over €10,000 for both causes, Michael started his mission at 7.0pm and completed it live on Shane Stapleton's OurGame Youtube channel.

During the hour, the money raised went up to €12,880.
