A German man is claiming the title of world mobile phone-chucking champion after hurling his handset 67.5m - that's 223 feet in old money.

The new record set by Nico Morawa - a member of the association of German mobile phone throwers - thrashes the former monster throw of champion Heiko Scholl, who flung his mobile 65.8m four years ago.

Morawa beat 70 other contestants who took part in a cellphone tossing event on Sunday.

AFP reports that both men are from Kamenz in the eastern state of Saxony. Which is nice. ®
