20 year-old Tunisian Dhaou Fatnassi was bet an unknown amount of money by some of his friends to eat the 28 eggs in one go.

The young man from the town of Kairouan – in the country’s north-east – ultimately won the bet but lost his life.

Within a few hours of completing the challenge the man began to complain of stomach pains and was subsequently rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Let this be a warning to all the early rising, headband and tracksuit wearing, gym junkies who thought that swallowing raw eggs before a work out was a good idea.

With a bit of luck it might even kill you.
