Man takes 26 years to solve Rubik's Cube

For the last 26 years Graham Parker has been obsessed with solving Rubik's cube. He finally did it.

'I cannot tell you what a relief it was to finally solve it,' the 45-year-old from Portchester, Hampshire, said. 'It has driven me mad over the years – it felt like it had taken over my life.

'I have missed important events to stay in and solve it and I would lie awake at night thinking about it.

'I have had wrist and back problems from spending hours on it but it was all worth it. When I clicked that last bit into place and each face was a solid colour, I wept.'

He's probably happy he solved it, but I predict that he is going to go through a period of depression.
