An Australian is thought to have broken the world record for the most bungee jumps in 24 hours, local media report.

Jay Phoenix began jumping from a bungee site in Queensland on Thursday at 0600 local time (2000 GMT). He completed 150 jumps by 0330 on Friday.

He said he wanted to "earn" his record by jumping with his feet tied together instead of using a harness, but admitted his ankles were "destroyed" after the attempt.

If his record is confirmed, he would beat previous record holder Kevin Scott Huntly, from South Africa, who made 105 jumps in 24 hours in 2011.
