Sidney won the world record after managing to make his eyes project 18.2 millimetres out of their eye sockets. The feat was achieved on January 10 of this year, in São Paulo, Brazil.

According to Guinness World Records, 'Uncle Chico' discovered his 'talent' when he was only nine years old while making faces in front of the mirror. In doing so, he realised that his eyes managed to protrude much more compared to his schoolmates.

When he tries to show off his 'talent', he explained, the world record holder loses the ability to see for a few seconds before his eyes can focus again. What's more, he manages to keep the eyeball projected between 20 to 30 seconds.

"My skill is definitely a gift. It came from my father, my mother, and the creator too", said Sidney.
