Minamino once held Guinness World Record – and wants to replicate it at Anfield

Liverpool's Japanese ace Takumi Minamino once held the Guinness World Record for most high-fives received in one minute.

While on the books of Cerezo Osaka in his native Japan back in 2014, Minamino managed the unexpected record with 187 high-fives in just 60 seconds.

However, his record stood for just two years before it was toppled in 2016.

Kaiser Permanente's San Diego branch, an American healthcare company, were able to snatch the record when they racked up a whopping 290 high-fives.

However, in a recent interview with the official Liverpool website, Minamino has revealed he may have his eyes on the record.

“Yes, I held the record for the most high-fives in a minute, but I think it has been broken.

“It happened when I played for Cerezo Osaka and it was an event organised by the club for people living in the area, in the town.

"About 200 people queued up in a line in a shopping centre and as I was the youngest player in the team I was chosen to join them.

“I had to run down the line and high-five them and I managed to make the Guinness World Records.

“It is a very good memory and we still talk about it. Maybe it would be good fun if I celebrated a goal for Liverpool like this!”

Minamino isn't the only Premier League player to hold an unorthodox world record.

Manchester United's Axel Tuanzebe is currently the Guinness World Record holder for the fastest time to clear a game of Hungry Hungry Hippos.

Tuanzebe cleared the kids game in 17.36 seconds.
