Gymnast Ashley Wallis, 14, has broken the Guinness world record for completing the most forward rolls in one minute.

TheDevonschoolboy completed 75 rolls in one minute at his gym club in Honiton. Video footage of his attempt shows Ashley Wallis rolling around in circles in his gym whilst his friends and teachers cheered him on.

The youngDevongymnast broke American Ivan Spizizen's previous Guinness world record of 69 rolls in one minute.

A number of gymnasts at the club attempted to break the record, but the title went to the young boy.

Speaking after his feat, he said his legs ached and he felt dizzy during the rolling challenge.

The event was held to raise money for Honiton gymnasts that are competing at the Geneva International Acro Cup in June.
