An Austrian strongman has set a new world record after a 1.8 tonne helicopter landed on his back.

Franz Muellner supported the machine for almost a minute after it landed on his shoulders to secure his place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The record attempt was part of the Vienna Worlds Records Day held in the Austrian capital's Prater park.

Other world records broken included the maximum number of straws that can be held at any one time in the mouth.

Marco Hort managed to fit 264 straws in his mouth to beat his old record of 259.
