Liverpool accountant sets marathon world records

Grant Thornton accountant Tom Jones has set the world record for fastest runner to complete a marathon while dressed as a guitar. The 27-year-old completed the London marathon at the weekend in four hours, 26 minutes, and it is one of 12 marathons he is completing this year to raise money for cancer.

Definitely a Born Dull contender.
