Meet Jimmy de Frenne a Belgian man who sat on a toilet in a café for nearly five days in a bid to set a world record. The 48-year-old had hoped to stay for 165 hours on a toilet in Ostend, Belgium, but gave up on Friday morning after 116 hours.

He was allowed to have a break five minutes per hour, and he could also accumulate the time for a nap. The bar toilet he sat on is not in use so a toilet break was necessary.

There is no official world record for the longest time sitting on a toilet and Guinness World Records has not responded to de Frenne's request to make his mark official.

A world record is usually the best global and most important performance that is ever recorded and officially verified in a specific skill or sport.
