The record breakers in the news today
Competitive eater Joey Chestnut has beaten his previous personal best by devouring 69 frankfurters - and buns in ten minutes - to win the annual New York Fourth of July contest.
The feat ensured Joey, also known as Jaws, took home $10,000 (£6,570) in prize money and a mustard-yellow champion's belt.
Joey currently holds the Guinness World Records title for most chocolate bars eaten in one minute after wolfing down three in sixty seconds at the Tin Fish Restaurant in San Diego, California, USA, on 22 July 2010.
To the world of sport, where David Moyes has this afternoon held his first press conference since becoming Manchester United manager.
Confirming striker Wayne Rooney would stay at the club, the press call followed news that 39-year-old forward Ryan Giggs is to take the role of player-coach at United.
Giggs scored an incredible four records in the 2013 edition of Guinness World Records book last year, notching up titles for the first(and only) player to have appeared in every season of the football Premier League (1992 - 2011) the first(and only) player to have scored in every season of the football Premier League (1992 - 2011), most appearances in the football Premier League (598) and most Premier League winner's medals (12).
To music and technology, where hackers have cloned the Android app of rapper Jay-Z and inserted messages criticising the US government.
The official app is being used by the rapper as a way to promote his latest album - Magna Carta Holy Grail.
Cloned versions of the app available via unofficial sites contain code that unlocked anti-Obama messages on 4 July.
The New York hip-hop star has topped the US Billboard 200 with 12 albums since first debuting at the top with Vol.2...Hard Knock Life in 1998 - setting a record for Most No. 1 rap albums on the US album chart.
