Man's rubber bottle nose blow bid


Georgian athlete Jemal Tkeshelashvili hopes to enter the Guinness Book of Records for bursting hot water bottles by inflating them with his nose.

The 18-year-old judo practitioner managed to burst three rubber bottles in 23, 16 and 13 seconds using his unusual technique.

The current record for blowing up a standard hot water bottle until it bursts was 51.98 seconds set by Brian Jackson from the United States in April 2006.

Mr Tkeshelashvili then performed his party trick of bursting a hot water bottle with a man sitting on it.
