Brit breaks glass carrying record
A British man has smashed the world record for the number of wine glasses held in one hand.
Philip Osenton, 43, a Beijing-based wine consultant, managed 51 glasses, surpassing the previous record of 39.
He says he learnt to carry a lot of glasses simultaneously while working as a sommelier, or wine steward, at London hotels such as the Ritz and the Savoy.
Mr Osenton said: "When I was head sommelier at the Ritz hotel, I've had a 140-cover restaurant to set up in the morning between breakfast and lunch.
"So basically, with two glasses per setting, I had got 280 glasses to put out with a very short amount of time."
