This is Kevin Carr, a barman from Devon who is pretty good at running.

In fact, the British lad is so good at running that he just dashed 16,000 miles around the world in record time – becoming the fastest person to ever do it.

And in another world first, he did it all on his own, taking him a whopping (but fast) 19 months. Forrest Gump would be proud.

The 34-year-old set off from Devon in July 2013 and ran through Europe before flying to India. He then went on to Australia and New Zealand where tackled some tough terrain.

He eventually made his way over to America and finally flew into the east coast of Ireland before hitting the finishing line back in Devon.

Speaking to the BBC, he said:

It’s been an incredibly huge strain these last few weeks to get here in time to do the record. It was never meant to come down to this much of a nail-biter.

I’m pretty tired… I think I’ll go home now.

Brilliant. What a legend!
