Duo in continent-hopping record bid

A globe-trotting duo are waiting to be told if their whistle-stop round-the-world adventure has landed them a place in the record books.

Friends Adrian Butterworth and Gunnar Garfors visited five countries on different continents in a single day during their unique international trip.

The epic adventure saw the pair - who met at university in Falmouth, Cornwall, 15 years ago - start at Istanbul in Turkey (Asia) before heading to Morocco in Casablanca (Africa), Paris in France (Europe) and Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic (North America) before finishing in Caracas in Venezuela (South America) shortly before midnight, local time, the same day.
