Sure he's got patience

Dan Magness breaks the official Guinness World Record for controlling a soccer ball for the longest time in London.

An excited crowd gathered around the special cube which had been built for the 25-year-old Englishman cheered when the clock exceeded 19 hours and 30 minutes, the previous record set by Brazilian Martinho Eduardo Orige in 2003.

But Magness kept the ball in the air and broke the 24-hour barrier by touching the ball an estimated quarter of a million times.

The rules set by Guinness World Record dictate that the ball must be in constant motion and not touch the floor, hands or arms.

However, the juggler is allowed to have a five-minute break every hour in his specially designed restroom equipped with a massage bed and a toilet.
