Britain's Ellen MacArthur has completed her single-handed round-the-world voyage in record-breaking time.

She crossed the finish line at 2230 GMT on Monday, beating the previous mark set by Frenchman Francis Joyon of 72 days, 22 hours, 54 mins and 22 secs.

The Isle of Wight-based yachtswoman completed the 27,000-mile voyage in 71 days and under 13 hours.

This is incredible, congrats to her on an amazing feat. Great to see all the news media really have a huge interest in this.

She beat the previous record by over a day. :)
