In the video submitted as evidence, Mohammed lies on the floor with his chest pressed into the ground. His legs then spin around at 360 degrees – his feet touching the ground at every angle in a feat of amazing dexterity. He achieves it 33 times in a minute, four more than the current record of 29, raising hopes he will be crowned in the coming weeks.
