Incredible! Nigerian Man Breaks Guinness World Record by Cycling 64 Miles with Football on His Head (Photos/Video)
Harrison Chinedu, who is Nigerian footballer, has reportedly broken the Guiness World Record after he cycled 103 kilometres (64 miles) with a football balanced on his head.
Chinedu who was spotted wearing the Super Eagles jersey, rode his bicycle with a ball on his head from the beach to the National stadium, Surulere, while fans, drivers and passers by, sang and cheered him on as he attempted the bizarre feat.
According to Chinedu, he had tried the feat in March this year but failed when he reached 30 miles, but after several rehearsals and training, he made up his mind to carry out the feat again.
Speaking after he achieved the feat, Chinedu said: "My biggest motivation was that I believe in showcasing my God-given talent. I know I have the skill and I want to show the world what I can do. This one is a record created by me and I am happy that I have done my own side. And it's left for the Guinness World Records to ratify it and bring back results."
