Liverpool forward Takumi Minamino has revealed he once broke a Guinness World Record after achieving the most high-fives in one minute.
As an 18-year-old, the Japan international conducted a total of 187 during his time at Cerezo Osaka, who had organised an event for the local community on January 14, 2014.
The unique record has since been surpassed by American Kaiser Permanente San Diego, who registered a total of 290 on April 21, 2016.
Nevertheless, it remains an achievement that Minamino remembers fondly.
“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,” he told Liverpool’s official website.
“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!”
