The weird and wacky entries in this year's Guinness Book of Records

It's been a record-breaking summer thanks to the incredible efforts of our athletes. But even the likes of Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis would struggle to compete with some of the entries in the latest Guinness Book of World Records.
Among the wacky wonders to find a place in the 2013 edition is Popeye lookalike Moustafa Ismail and his monstrous biceps, and a man with the tallest mohican hairstyle, measuring a towering 3ft 8in.
It's not just humans either, with all creatures great and small snatching a few records — from a mighty Great Dane to a teeny bull.
Biggest biceps: Popeye lookalike Moustafa Ismail, 24, from Massachusetts, has spent ten years pumping iron twice a day to get his 31in biceps. He eats lots of chicken rather than spinach - which he hates

Biggest horse: Big Jake, a nine-year-old Belgian gelding, from Winsconsin, U.S., tops 20 hands - or almost 7ft
A 29-year-old bull called Archie, from County Antrim, Northern Ireland, measures just 30in from his hooves to his withers

Tallest dog: Three-year-old Great Dane Zeus and his owner Denise Doorlag in Michigan. On his hind legs, he towers over her at 7ft 4in

Heaviest female athlete: British sumo wrestler Sharran Alexander wolfed down a high calorie diet of takeaways and fried chicken to get into the record books at 32st

(Left) Biggest Barbie collection: Blonde Barbie fan Bettina Dorfmann, 52, from Germany, has 15,000 dolls she's collected since 1993 - they fill a room. (Right) Tallest mohican: Japanese designer Kazuhiro Watanabe’s spear-like hairdo peaks at more than 3ft 8in, thanks to three cans of hairspray and a large bottle of gel

Fastest sheep: Zippy Lambourghini, from a farm in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, won't bleat after winning 165 out of 179 races

Largest hotdog: Feeling peckish? This 7lb, 16in monster on sale in Chicago will set you back £24
