If it is fake the guy did a hell of a job photo shopping it. Even included the ripples in the water where the fish's fin is submerged.

yeah.....thats a koi carp not a goldfish, it doesnt even look anything like a gold fish. it isnt even close to being half the british record let alone a world record and there is no reason to suggest its a fake- i swear anything that is even remotely impressive these days you see some complete tool comenting like "this is proven to be fake because (insert load of nonsense).
ive had kois and ghost carp to double figures and regular carp to 27llb


pretty much typical bullshit story from the disgrace of a newspaper that is the daily mail.
