Clocks will become outdated and humans will spend an extra hour in bed – or at work – according to researchers at Durham University and the UK’s Nautical Almanac Office.

However, scientists advised the planet’s citizens not to throw out the digital alarm clock just yet, as the length of the day will not extend to 25 hours for around another 200 million years.

Because the day is lengthening only by two milliseconds every 100 years, even getting an extra minute in the day will take 6.7 million years.

Study co-leader Leslie Morrison admitted: “It’s a very slow process.

“Even though the observations are crude, we can see a consistent discrepancy between the calculations and where and when the eclipses were actually seen.”

Researchers used historic accounts of eclipses and astrological events from 720BC to 2015 to estimate day lengthening during their study.

Using historical texts, ancient drawings and stories, the group estimated how long each day has lated over the past millennia.
