The King Of Text

‘DAVID Beckham is one example of a man who has become famous because of his special talents.

Beckham celebrates regaining his text crown

He is, for instance, favourite to be named Dad Of The Year, the Star says, despite cheating on the mother of his two children.

However, it’s just as well for Victoria Beckham that she isn’t married to James Trusler, a man who is also blessed with special talents – in this case, the ability to text faster than any other man alive.

The Express says the Vodafone network engineer from Shoreham in East Sussex knocked almost a minute off his previous record of two minutes six seconds in front of a live TV audience.

It took him only 67 seconds to text the message, ‘The razor-toothed piranhas of the genera Serrasalmus and Pygocentrus are the most ferocious freshwater fish in the world. In reality they seldom attack a human’.

The 30-year-old explained that he sends 4,000 texts a month – more than 100 a day and more even than Beckham managed at the height of his affair with Rebecca Loos.

However, before we start celebrating the presence of a world champion in Britain, the Express explains that Trusler now lives in Australia.

No doubt, their facilities are better, with an academy already bringing through the next generation of texters…’
