PHOTOS, VIDEO: Nigerian footballer Harrison Chinedu cycles 103km with a ball on his head

Nigerian footballer Harrison Chinedu cycled 103 kilometers (64 miles) with a football on his head, hoping to enter the Guinness Book of Records.
According to CNN, Chinedu may have broken the Guinness World Record for the farthest distance traveled with a football on the head.
If successful, he will not only break an existing record, he would also have created a new one.
It will take around 90 days for the Guinness World Record body to verify and confirm the results.
Chinedu, who played professional football in Cambodia, told CNN he discovered the skill during his 10-year professional football career.
He said he then read about the Guinness World Record and set out to do something extraordinary.
“I did it because I wish to share my God-given talent to the world and to encourage the young ones to do something that has never been done before,” he said in a phone interview from his home in Lagos.
According to Chinedu, the most challenging part of his trip was cycling on the Eko bridge, one of the three bridges connecting the Lagos mainland and Lagos Island. It sits over the Lagos lagoon and is 3.43 kilometers long.
Chinedu said with the help of policemen and Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) officers he was able to navigate through heavy traffic, bumps and potholes on the road.
