    Nightclub owner Steve Stevens is nursing tired limbs after breaking a disco world record by dancing non-stop for more than five days.

    Steve strained his right knee but managed to keep moving for 131 hours.

    The 35-year-old set off on Tuesday last week and ended on Sunday at his club Angelik in Worthing, West Sussex.


    Under rules set by Guinness World Records he was allowed a rest of five minutes every hour.

    The former Ironman triathlete kept up his energy levels with a diet consisting of protein shakes, fruit, porridge, jacket potatoes, chips and lasagne, but still managed to lose a quarter of a stone over the five-day period.

    Steve, who spent his time throwing shapes to dance music played by a team of 30 DJs, said: 'The hardest times were between 4am and 6am, when people were shouting at me to wake up.

    'But as soon as the sun came up it got me going again.'

    He beat the previous world record, 123 hours and 15 minutes, and raised £3,200 for hospices in Sheffield and Angmering, West Sussex.
