Following his gut-wrenching effort, Takeru is now the proud holder of the world record for sausage-eating. (Think you can do better? Don't even think about it. Please.)
The 34-year-old regards his weekend victory as a particular triumph because he's been controversially banned from the International Hot Dog Eating Contest on New York's Coney Island after a dispute with the Major League Eating governing body. We're not making this stuff up - honest...
In case you were wondering, Takeru "extends his stomach" prior to competitions by drinking three litres of water in a minute. (Again, don't try this at home. It's silly.)
Well, good luck to Takeru for his future endeavours. And big commiserations to whoever went in the Portaloo after him on Sunday afternoon.
