A Nigerian man, Tonye Solomon, has broken the Guinness World Record for most steps climbed on a ladder while balancing a football on the head.
He achieved the feat by climbing 150 steps to the top of a 250-foot-tall radio mast while carefully controlling the ball on top of his head.
Tonye Solomon spent two months preparing for it, practicing in his spare time until he was certain he would not fail.
During the record attempt, he was seemingly unfazed by the steep ascent, taking just 12 and a half minutes to complete the climb.
Reacting to Tonye’s success, his fellow Nigerians took to Twitter to celebrate him.
