Eddie is undergoing this incredible challenge as a salute to Nelson Mandela, who spent 27 years in prison in South Africa. Eddie pauses to read out the poem 'Invictus', by Ernest Henley. The poem meant a lot to Mandela, especially during those 27 years of imprisonment and the words also help Eddie to stay focused, and keep going.
