Cape Town - Well-known South African freestyle footballer Khris Njokwana broke a Guinness World Record that was held by England international Theo Walcott.

In December 2016, Walcott - who has since joined Everton - set the record for the highest altitude football dropped and controlled from 34 metres, beating out then fellow Arsenal team-mates Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Francis Coquelin.

Less than 18 months later, Njokwana upped the anti by breaking the record in just three attempts from 37.4 metres at Johannesburg Stadium.
