He set off from Oxford last June, finishing in March, shortly before the Coronavirus lockdown.

His achievement has been confirmed as part of the launch of Guinness World Records Day.

The pair covers a distance of 18326 miles (29,391 km) in 263 days, eight hours and seven minutes, passing through 25 countries.

During his travels, which included flights where crossings were impossible, he received a heatwave across Europe, a monsoon in Asia and an Australian bush fire.

He described his record-breaking journey as "a thrill of a lifetime"

After the introduction of the travel ban, he rode one of the last canyons to Britain at the time of the voyage.

The previous record was set by British cyclists Edward Collier and Louis Paul Snellgrove last May.

Ms Dixon, a Yorkshire lawyer and motor neuron disease nurse consultant at Oxford University Hospitals, has raised more than £ 40,000 for the charity.

In a joint statement, he said: "The experience was unbelievable and certainly not without its challenges - the most special racing to make it home as limitations due to the coronovirus epidemic.

"Setting a world record was truly a thrill of a lifetime and we hope it inspires others to believe that anything is possible if you follow your dreams."
