Man breaks grape catching record

Ashrita Furman catches grapes in his mouth
An American man has broken the world record for catching the most grapes in his mouth in a minute.

Ashrita Furman set the new record by gobbling 68 grapes in the time, juicing the old record of 55 grapes.

He even employed his own personal grape-thrower to help him with the record attempt and the two trained for the grape catching attempt together.

It's the fifth record Ashrita's broken this year, including the fastest mile bounced on a Space Hopper.

Over the past 25 years Ashrita's had about 100 records registered in the Guinness Book of World Records, and currently holds about 30.

He's now in training for his next record attempt - hopping a mile on one foot.
