David Cánovas Martínez, better known as TheGrefg, made Twitch history during 11th January, as the Spanish streamer broke the record for most concurrent viewers by a single broadcaster, one he already held.

Grefg reached 850,000 concurrent viewers, putting him past his previous all-time record which sat at 660,000 spectators during the Fortnite Galactus event.

A big reason for his astronomical numbers is that Fortnite is preparing to release an Icon series skin for the content creator, one which is mere hours away from being unveiled. 

With this, TheGrefg holds three out of the five most-watched streams by a single broadcaster, with Tyler "Ninja" Blevins and Michael "Shroud" Grzesiek completing the top five.
