After 26 years of obsessing, a man has finally solved the mystery of his Rubik's cube.
"I cannot tell you what a relief it was to finally solve it," said Graham Parker, 45. "It has driven me mad over the years - it felt like it had taken over my life."
He added, "I have missed important events to stay in and solve it and I would lie awake at night thinking about it."
Parker's wife, Jean, said that it felt as if there was a third person in their marriage.
"When I met Graham, he was already obsessed with the cube - spending hours on it every day," she said. "I have often thought about getting rid of it but I knew he would not rest until he had solved it."
A representative of the World Cube Associated said that it was the longest it has ever taken to finish the cube.
