    Mr Cox, a cycling proficiency instructor from Cornwall, set out from Greenwich on 7 February and has taken 12 plane and boat transfers, crossed six continents and cycles through more than 20 countries.

    Mr Coxís journey took him through France, across Northern Africa, across Asia, then through Australia, Northern America and then up through Spain and France and a final leg from Plymouth to Greenwich.

    He took on the challenge to raise money for the Geoff Thomas Foundation, which works with the blood cancer charity Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research to get advanced new treatments to patients more quickly.

   The previous Guinness World Record was held by Mark Beaumont who did the journey in 195 days in 2008.
