    These scuba divers are claiming a new world record after playing the same card game underwater for 36 hours.

    The 16 divers - who worked in shifts so they could change oxygen tanks - sat on the bottom of a pool in Geiselhoering, Germany, playing a favourite local game called 'sheepshead'.

    Organiser Eric Schlegelmilch said: 'We gave up counting who owed what after an hour. We didn't want anyone going belly up.'

    Now the group plan to contact Guinness World Records officials with a video record of their stunt.
