The cigar was presented on long tables in an old colonial fort overlooking the harbor of Havana.

Jose Castelar and his team worked 12 hours a day for 10 days to roll the cigar, which is the width of an ordinary one.

The length of the cigar was verified by a British Embassy official, who said the information would be sent to be verified by Guinness World Records.

Fidel Castro was born on August 13, 1926. He governed the Republic of Cuba as prime minister from 1959 to 1976 and then as president from 1976 to 2008.
