Borussia Dortmund supporter Christian Kinner from Germany has secured a place in the new Guinness World Records 2017 Edition for the doing the world’s Longest shout.
His record attempt took place in collaboration with Sportradio in Munich, Germany and saw three people battle it out for the title, live on air.
Christian's feat was part of a radio contest to find a sports fan who could shout the longest “goal” in the style of Latin American soccer commentators who stretch their vowels.

The Guinness World Records rules for this title state that the challenger must maintain a sound level of at least 80 decibels throughout the entire attempt.
