Infinite loop

It’s possible to “break out” of the infinite loop with break as well:
while True:
	n = int(input())
	print('The input was:', n)
	if n == -1:
		break

print('End of the program!')
Input
Output
10 20 16 8 0 2 -1
The input was: 10 The input was: 20 The input was: 16 The input was: 8 The input was: 0 The input was: 2 The input was: -1
As soon as the inputted number is -1, the program stops the loop. We can break the loop at an appropriate time to stop the program from executing an unwanted thing for specific input.

Challenge

Given a sequence of numbers, we are interested in how many times is the largest number in the sequence repeated.
The sequence is given as a stream of integers, and the sequence is terminated as soon as the inputted number is equal to 0. The rest of the input should be ignored.
The program should output a single integer - the number of times the maximum element in the sequence is repeated.
Input
Output
5 5 1 1 5 3 0 9 11 4 5
3
Explanation: The largest number is 5 and it appears 3 times before the sequence is terminated.
