Ram, 62, has been growing his moustache since 1970 and spends two hours every day pampering it to ensure its continual growth – but only washes it once a fortnight.

In Rome, in 2010, Ram was given the title and has not been beaten since.

Ram Singh: “I have been growing my moustache since 1970, and it is now longer than 18.5 feet!

“Both moustache and beard have always been a symbol of pride for men – so I’ve been able to earn a name, fame and respect for my moustache.

“People always compliment my moustache – including Chief Ministers, Vice Presidents and the President of India.

“I use various herbal oils to help maintain the health of my moustache. I massage my beard with a concoction of olive, mustard and coconut oil.

“Once I have done the moustache, I wash my beard with water infused with fullers earth that I keep overnight.

“I spent two and a half hours every day grooming my beard – but I only wash my moustache once every two weeks.”
