Cyprus on Sunday broke the Guinness record for forming an underwater human chain at the old port in Limassol.

The divers needed 200 volunteers to break the record but 280 showed up to complete the feat, according to CNA.

The volunteer divers were joined together by holding rope which was fastened to the dock as they went five metres down for around ten minutes.

Organised groups and individual divers took part. The goal was to promote Cyprus and scuba diving.

The event was supported by Flyboarding Cyprus.

In 2015, Italy broke the participation record with 173 underwater divers on the island of Elba. A prior record was in 2013 with 110 divers participating on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.
