In his country’s commercial city, Lagos, Chinedu set the new Guinness World Record for distance traveled on bicycle with a football on the head, 103.6 km. In a show of determination and skill, Chinedu was able to navigate the above distance with a ball placed in the centre of his head, AFP reports.

It was not his first time into the Guinness Book of World Records, he became the first man to travel the farthest distance while balancing a football on his head.
