Californian Joey Chestnut- the hot dog eating champion took home $10,000 (£4,800) prize after he guzzled 103 hamburgers in just eight minutes to set a new record and win the Krystal Square Off IV World Hamburger Eating Championship.

The 23-year-old surpassed the previous world record of 97 Krystals held by Japan's Takeru Kobayashi, set at last year's Krystal Square Off. His amazing feat was compared to Roger Bannisterbreaking the four-minute mile barrier.

Brad Wahl, vice president of marketing for The Krystal Company, said: 'We never thought we'd see someone anywhere near, let alone past the century mark when we started the Krystal Square Off in 2004.

'But like when Roger Bannister broke the four-minute mile barrier more than 50 years ago, Joey Chestnut has set a new benchmark today for all moving forward.'
