Sam Smith has just broken TWO major Guinness World Records

It was a good day yesterday for Sam Smith! The singer broke not one, but TWO Guinness World Records for his music. 

Mr Smith went along to the headquarters of Guinness World Records to be presented with the prestigious titles. 

They include the first Bond theme tune to reach number 1 in the UK charts and for a debut album to remain in the top ten for 69 consecutive weeks. 

Previously, only two James Bond songs had climbed to number 2 in the charts, Duran Duran's A View To Kill and Adele's Skyfall in 2012.

The previous record for the top ten album charts was held by Emeli Sandé for Our Version of Events, which stood in the top ten for 66 weeks.
