Man with world's longest fingernails has them cut off.

Shridhar Chillal, the Guinness World Record holder, has been growing his nails for 66 years.

They are about to go on display in New York.

The 78-year-old Shridhar Chillal, from India, has been growing the nails on his left hand since he was at school.

He has continued with the impressive feat despite admitting his super-long talons have made it difficult for him to find work and love.

Shridhar has now been officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the person with the 'Longest Fingernails on a Single Hand Ever' and features in their 2016 edition.

His incredible nails now have a cumulative length of 909.6cm.

His thumb nail is the longest at two metres followed by his middle finger at 186.6cm, ring finger at 181.6cm, little finger at 179.1cm and index finger at 164.5cm.
