Need a break ...<br />
<br />
Two RAF friends have set a new Guinness World Record - for the longest ever snooker match.<br />
<br />
Corporal Joel Pickersgill, 34, and Sergeant Chris Bullen, 35, played continuously for a staggering 87 hours and 33 minutes, comfortably beating the previous record of 85 hours and 19 minutes.<br />
<br />
Cpl Pickersgill emerged victorious 118 games to 48 in the titanic contest, with over 7,000 balls potted.<br />

By the end, the players were so tired they began hallucinating and seeing pockets in the middle of the table.
