100-year-old Briton completes marathon

18th October 2011

Fauja Singh, a British man from East London, has become the world's oldest marathon runner at the age of 100.

Mr Singh started running after the deaths of his wife and son and completes 10 miles every day. He attributed his success to ginger curry, tea and "being happy". Mr Singh said: "The secret to a long and healthy life is to be stress-free. Be grateful for everything you have, stay away from people who are negative, stay smiling and keep running."
