A record-breaking typist has set a new world best – by banging out sentences with his CONK.
Mohammed Khursheed Hussain, 23, used his heroic honker to punch out 103 words on a computer keyboard to set a new global benchmark.
He used his beak to bag the best when he typed out a 103-word sentence on the keyboard in an astonishing 47.44 seconds.
With his hands tied behind his back, Mohammed snouted the phrase: "Guinness World Records has challenged me to type this sentence using my nose in the fastest time."
That secured him a second world record – his first was for typing the English alphabet in just 3.43 seconds with his fingers.
Mohammed, from Hyderabad, India, endured gruelling six-hour daily practice sessions for three years to whittle his nose-typing time down to a competitive one.

And his time smashed the previous best time of a minute and 33 seconds, set in Dubai in 2008.
Hinting at his tips on becoming a successful record holder he told the International Business Times: "If you want to set a record, every millisecond counts.
"This time I typed with one eye closed, as it is difficult otherwise to locate the keys."
Other typing records include fastest texting on a smartphone. The fastest time was recorded by 15-year-old Gaurav Sharma in January in Washington.
In 18.44 seconds he typed: "The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human."
Microsoft engineer Mark Encarnación also set a best in April. He accurately typed the above phrase in 25.90 seconds – while blindfolded.
