Breaking: British cyclist cycles round the world in just 79 days and smashes world record

British ultra-endurance cyclist Mark Beaumont has smashed the record for circumnavigating the globe by reaching his gruelling target one day ahead of schedule.

The adventurer set off from France in July on a mission to bike around the world in 80 days and he arrived back in Paris on Monday evening on day 79 of the journey.

The Scot is awaiting official verification he has set a new Guinness World Records title, but it is expected to be confirmed that he has succeeded in knocking 44 days, roughly a third, off the existing record of 123 days.
