Popular television series Game of Thrones has found a place in the new Guinness World Records 2016 book for largest TV drama simulcast.
The fantasy-epic aired the largest simultaneous broadcast of a television drama when its second episode of season five was simulcast to 173 countries, starting at 2 am on April 20, reported express.co.uk.
The show beat CSI's record, which they set just five weeks earlier by two countries.
Actress Maisie Williams, who plays the role of Arya Stark, received the official certificate on behalf of the show. "I'm so pleased for Game of Thrones to be a part of Guinness World Records, I'm going to tell my step brother as he gets the book every year for Christmas. I can't wait to see the look on his face," she said. (Also Read: Game of Thrones 6 Will be 'Mental,' Promises Emilia Clarke)

The 2016 edition of Guinness World Records will be released on September 10.
