A new Guinness World Record was set at Emirates Stadium on Friday, July 11 for the longest game of Chinese Whispers involving 1,330 children and celebrities from the world of sport and entertainment.
The record-breaking children raised more than £100,000 for Save the Children and Arsenal’s Charity of the Season, TreeHouse, the national charity for autism education.
The attempt, which lasted for two hours and four minutes, beat the existing record held by the Cycling Club of Chengdu, China, involving 1083 people in 2006. In the last two years, there have been seven unsuccessful attempts to smash the record.
Arsenal TV Online's cameras were there to capture all the colour and excitement from the record attempt.
You can now watch a FREE video clip of the event, including interviews with compere John Salako, actresses Amanda Mealing and Michelle Collins, Arsenal legend Charlie George, TreeHouse chief executive Ian Wylie and Ralph Hannah from Guinness World Records.Copyright 2013 The Arsenal Football Club plc.
