River Plate Fans March Into Guinness Book Of Records With 7,829m-Long Flag (PICTURES)

Argentinian football supporters are a fanatical lot, and River Plate's contingent have lived up to their raucous reputation by brandishing the biggest flag in the world.

Supporters marched with the world's largest piece of cloth - measured at 7,829 metres long - through a street in Buenos Aires on Monday.

And Los Millonarios' followers efforts will be noted when they are listed in the Guinness Book of World Records in due course.
