Dutch crack egg throwing event

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!
