An 11-year-old boy, Chinonso Eche has become the youngest African footballer to set a Guinness World Record for the most consecutive football touches in one minute.

Chinonso Eche who hails from  Delta State was fished out after he was able to complete 101 touches while supporting another ball on his head.
