A Japanese dog has entered the record books for the second time after proving adept at balancing on a ball.

Purin, a 10-year-old beagle smashed the Guinness World Records title for the fastest 10 metres travelled on a ball by a dog in a time of just 11.9 seconds.

Last year she set a record of catching the most balls in her paws.

Guinness World Records editor-in-chief, Craig Glenday, said: "Purin is a superstar in her own right now having achieved double-record holder status with her latest exploits.

"Justin Bieber is the youngest artist ever to achieve five #1 albums... but can he run 10m on a Swiss ball?"
