The Dutch team has been crowned World Throwing egg champions for the second consecutive year.

The seventh event, in Swaton, Lincolnshire, saw contenders from as far-flung as South Africa take part.

But it was the Dutch who cracked the distance throwing event, managing to toss a raw egg 40m.

Maybe the England football team should adopt the sport. Now that they have crashed out of the Euro, it would save the fans throwing a few eggs!
