Iranian wins Guinness for longest hand release

Iran goalkeeper Alireza Beiranvand entered the Guinness World Records on Thursday for the longest hand kick ever on a soccer field – a throw of … 61.26m!

Now 29, the Boavista goalkeeper achieved this feat on October 11, 2016 in a 2018 World Cup qualifying match against South Korea. Qualified for the World Cup in Russia, Beiranvand then distinguished himself by stopping a penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo.

Originally from the village of Sarab-e Yas, the player grew up in a nomadic family in the province of Lorestan, before coming to Tehran on his own at the age of 15 to fulfill his dream of becoming a footballer.
