Krishna Kumar recently spread the love by breaking the record for the Most hugs given in one minute by an individual at a school in Andhra Pradesh in India.
The affectionate record breaker managed to embrace 79 different people in just 60 seconds.
88 students queued up to get involved in the speed-hugging challenge.
Krishna attempted to hug 83 people but unfortunately the Guinness World Records records management team was forced to disqualify a number of squeezes which were more headlocks than hugs.
The rules for this record title state that to count as a genuine hug, both arms have to be wrapped around the other person in a close embrace.
In his application for the title, Krishna told Guinness World Records: “Achieving Guinness World Record, I consider as … the highest level of human achievement.”
Previously, the record for the most hugs given in one minute by an individual was 77, achieved by Carrie Bickmore (Australia) at the Huggies Hugs for Healing event at the Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick, New South Wales, Australia, in 2014.
