A 42-year-old Georgian labelled 'The Magnet Man' has broken his own world record for sticking spoons to his body.

Etibar Elchiyev, a kickboxing coach from Tblisi, stuck 53 spoons to his chest and back, breaking the record of 50 he himself set in 2011.

Elchiyev claims his body is naturally magnetic, but this has never been proven. Quite how the spoons stick so resolutely to his body is a mystery

Elchyev commented: "When the time comes I am going (to move) an aeroplane, then an empty train carriage, something like this. I won't reveal all my cards at once."
