Witnessing the midfielder enter the record books on the comedy panel show was presenter James Cordon, former England midfielder Jamie Redknapp, cricketing hero Andrew Flintoff, Sky Sports presenter Kate Abdo as well as comedians Jack Whitehall and Romesh Ranganathan.

The watching public took to Twitter to congratulate Ramsey on, what is sure to be, one of the proudest moments in his life:

It’s not the first time a world record has been broken on the hilarious show.

In fact, during the same episode, Redknapp set a record for the greatest height to control a football following a kick from 18.6 metres, beating the record set by five-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi.

Previous world records include former Dutch player, Patrick Kluivert and Britain’s tennis players, Heather Watson setting a record for the most consecutive headers of a Swiss ball in 30 seconds by a team of two with an impressive 32.

Ramsey also endeared himself to Arsenal fans on the show when he claimed he would “relegate Tottenham” if he was made Prime Minister.

Ramsey has played a key role for Arsenal this season as the Gunners go in search of their first league title since 2004.
