As a child he made regional headlines after he survived being trampled by 7,273,876 Elephants in London Zoo.
On the 28th of April 2017, Nigel Nygelson became the first person in recorded history to both win the Olympics (despite them not being held that year) and the Euromillions Lottery, all in the space of 15 minutes. He was heading North on Daniel Brightlevard at approximately Bright o'clock when Froble Gruber accidentally discharged a shotgun shell directly into his chest cavity. Miraculously all 72,000 bits of shrapnel missed Nigel's heart by about twelve atoms. Nigel is currently recovering in Frod's basement and has since been signed up to the European Space Agency whereby he will be the first man to enter the vacuum of space unprotected for 'scientific' purposes.
Popular folklore suggests that if you remove Nigel's hood and lick his prominent bald patch you will be granted eternal luck, it is believed such figures as Dave from Alvin and the Chipmunks and even Ed Milliband have taken this rite of passage.
