Meet Strongman Manjit Singh, from the Great Britain, who has broken his 57th world record in a row at the age of 66!
A superman dad-of-three has secured his place in Guinness World Records Book after towing a 12-tonne double-decker bus with his ponytail.
Manjit had four failed starts because his hair was too shiny
Mr Singh is already known for his previous records — farthest distance to pull a single decker bus by the ears, as well as heaviest weight lifted by an eye socket and heaviest weight lifted by both eye sockets.
Back in 2009 he also pulled an 8.5 tonne bus becoming one of the strongest man on earth. However, his previous attempt almost ended in nothing as his hair was too smooth and shiny after he washed it before the event.
Manjit’s wife, two daughters, son, grandson and friends supported him as he sucessfully smashed his latest record on the premises of Braunstone Leisure Centre.
