In what has to set the record for longest-lasting hug ever, scientists in Athens have discovered the bones of a couple who died locked in an embrace -- and remain so after 5,800 years.

The skeletons were unearthed in 2013, but are now being publicized after DNA testing to determine the gender of each.

The cause of death is unknown, but it has been determined that the two were in their twenties. Further DNA examination will determine whether or not they were genetically related.
