He eventually managed to break the world record by catching the ball falling from a height of 221.89 meters (727.98 feet), and was pictured lying on his back on the court with the ball in hand.

Brendan celebrated the catch by running up to Fifi, Trixie and Nick and giving them hugs and high fives.

Brendan made his second attempt at the record after narrowly missing last year.

The record was set by American football star Rob Gronkowski, who successfully caught the ball in April 2021 when it fell from a helicopter at 188.9 meters (620 feet).

In July, Brendan was rushed to hospital for emergency forearm surgery.

The AFL great has previously talked about his terrifying hospital dashboard on his radio show, Melbourne’s 101.9 The Fox Fifi, Fev & Nick.

He said he injured his arm after getting a “belt” during a football game.

The athlete said he initially thought his arm was badly bruised, but after nearly a whole week of unbearable throbbing, he decided to have it looked at.

“It didn’t really hurt, I thought it was just bruising and it will go down. Thursday night I couldn’t sleep, and it just made sense,” he said.

He eventually went for an ultrasound and X-ray, before being rushed to the ER hospital an hour later.

“The pressure in my arm, I thought it was going to explode,” he said.

It turned out that Brendan suffered from compartment syndrome — 50 percent of his muscle was dead, he had torn ligaments and torn muscles in his forearm.

Over the weekend, Brendan posted a photo from his hospital bed, reassuring his fans that he was resting after surgery.

‘Operation completed. Time to enjoy good food, absolutely starving,” he captioned his post.

He also showed off a bandage on his arm and captioned it: “Look after the surgery.”

Brendan recently revealed on air that he had lost an impressive 10kg in three weeks prior to his boxing debut at the Footy Legends Fight Night later this year.

“I’ve lost 10 kg in three weeks and I feel good man,” he said. “I’m up and over!”
