THE RECORDS KEEP tumbling at Manchester City, with goalkeeper Ederson adding the latest one.

The Brazilian has already collected EFL Cup and Premier League winners’ medals since signing from Benfica last June, and now he has a Guinness World Record to his name.

Ederson, whose distribution has added a fresh dimension to City’s attacking play, produced the longest drop-kick in football, which was measured at an incredible 75.35 metres.

The 24-year-old, set to go to the World Cup with his country, showed off the honour on his Instagram account on Thursday.

Despite his latest record, Ederson did miss out on winning the Premier League Golden Glove for the most clean sheets after David de Gea secured the prize for the first time in his career on Thursday.
