A Swiss break dancer has won a place in the Guinness Book of Records after managing to spin round 16 times on his elbows.

Swiss newspaper 20 minutes said Mark Dossenbach, 25, had started spinning round on his elbows instead of his hands after injuring his wrist.

He said he had trained for at least an hour a day for eight years to be good enough to spin 16 times from a single push.
