Give Abhinabha Tangerman from the Netherlands a one-handed round of applause! He has just entered the record books for his astonishingly fast attempt at the Most one-handed claps in one minute.

“I've always had the rare capacity for one-hand clapping,” he told Guinness World Records.

Well there’s no denying that statement – watch the video below to find out just how many claps Abhinabha achieved.

He has a tough total of 403 to beat and needs to do more than 6 claps a second.

Abhinabha was encouraged to take on this challenge by his friend Ashrita Furman (USA), Guinness World Records’ most prolific record breaker.

“It gives me joy to challenge myself,” said Abhinabha, speaking ahead of the attempt in Potsdam, Germany.

One-handed clapping is defined as using the fingers of one hand to hit the palm of the same hand.

Only clearly audible claps are included in the record total.
