Premier League - Begovic credited with longest goal in history of football

Stoke goalkeeper Asmir Begovic's remarkable long-range goal against Southampton last season has earned a place in the Guinness World Records book.

Begovic scored in bizarre fashion at the Britannia Stadium last November when a long kick forward - just 13 seconds after kick-off - caught the wind and then bounced over opposite number Artur Boruc into the net.

The strike was measured at 91.9 metres (301ft 6in) and has now been registered as the 'longest goal scored in football' in the latest edition of the famous book of records.
