JOEY CHESTNUT was crowned wiener of the annual Independence Day hot dog eating competition yet again after devouring a staggering 75 in just ten minutes.
The American was announced as champion of Nathan's Famous Hot Dog-Eating competition for an unbelievable 13th time in 14 years.
Chestnut, 36, even managed to beat his own record that stood at 74.
Not only did he win the tournament – he obliterated the rest of the field by munching 33 more hot dogs than his nearest rival.
His grand total meant he scoffed a staggeringly impressive 7.5 hot dogs every minute.
Chestnut was on a roll from the off clocking 12 hot dogs and buns in the first minute.
And for the first ever time, the competition was held behind-closed-doors to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
He told ESPN: "It was hard.
"I knew I was fast in the beginning. It was like blistering speed.
"And the dogs were cooked really well today. Minute six is where I really missed the crowd … and I hit a wall, and it took me a little bit more work to get through it.
"This is a crazy year, and I'm happy I was able to get a record."
Miki Sudo was untouchable yet again in the women's competition as she won her seventh consecutive contest by eating 48.5 hot dogs.
She smashed her own record of 41 as both competitors roll away with a £8010 prize pot.
Sudo said of her win: "I feel great.
"I'm sure the physical effects will kick in in a little bit. I think the condensed preparation period really lit a fire under me.
"To everybody watching at home, I wish you could be here."
