US man's 10.1cm tongue is world's longest!

A 24-year-old man in the US has entered the Guinness Book of World Records for possessing the world's longest tongue which measures an astonishing 10.1cm.

Nick Stoeberl from California has a tongue that measures 10.1cm (3.97in) long from its tip to the middle of the closed top lip.

The super-sized tongue is featured as one of the latest records set in the new Guinness World Records 2015 book.

The young artist and comedian loves the attention his tongue receives."I'm not only able to lick my nose, but also my elbow!" said Stoeberl.

He said that the only downside is "that I have to spend longer brushing my tongue in the morning."

Stoeberl has broken the record of Brit Stephen Taylor (9.8 cm) who has held the title since 2002.
