Joaquim, who is known as Chiquinho and dubbed the Angolan Jaw of Awe, has hailed his new world record as "a dream come true".
Contestants crammed their cake holes with a whole host of items including saucers, coffee cups and beer bottles but nobody's mouth could beat Francisco and his can of coke.
Ever since researchers tracked him down to his hometown in Angola, his videos have become a web sensation.
He was tracked down by Guinness World Records after becoming a YouTube hero. After two years of searching, they tracked him down to his hometown in Angola.
The 20-year-old, whose mouth is 17cm wide, shot to stardom on the streets of Luanda, the capital of Angola, performing jaw-dropping tricks.
The Guinness World Record for the longest tongue measures 9.8 cm (3.86 in) from the tip to the middle of his closed top lip and was achieved by Stephen Taylor (United Kingdom), at Westwood Medical Centre, Coventry, United Kingdom.
