A freediving duo has set a Guinness World Record for the longest underwater dance without oxygen after they performed in the deepest pool in the world for over three minutes.

According to Mail Online, Marina Kazankova and Dmitry Malasenko performed the 3 minute 28 second dance on a single breath.

The dance was confirmed as the longest of its kind on record when the pair performed at the Y-40 pool, which is known to be the deepest in the world in Padova, Italy.

The performance included a sword fight and flamenco-inspired moves with Marina wearing a beautiful burnt orange dress for the performance.

The artists glided and pirouetted around the pool, enchanting the audience who were able to view the show from an underwater glass tunnel that passed through the centre of the pool.

In order to make the stunt even more impressive, the pair managed to cram in a section of the dance where they performed on a tight rope.
