Leicester's ironman Manjit Singh in world record bid - using his eyesockets
Leicester's ironman is preparing for his most painful stunt yet, in the hope of breaking a world record.
Manjit Singh will be attaching weights to his eye sockets using metal hooks, and will then lift the two weights, totalling 25kg, at least 10cm and hold them there for five seconds.
If he succeeds, he will break the current record of 23.5kg set in China.
"I have special metal hooks that go over the bone at the bottom of my eye socket," said the 62-year-old.

"This will be the most painful record I've ever set - my eyes will probably be watering a lot.
"I've tried it before and lifted about 14kg and it is painful."
The feat is due to take place in Leicester on Thursday.
