100-year-old marathon runner Fauja Singh broke the record for world's oldest marathon runner after completing the Toronto Marathon in eight hours, 25 minutes and 18 seconds.

The Indian-born London resident has earned himself the name "Turbaned Tornado" and already is a world record holder for his age group.

Singh now hopes to participate in the 2012 London Games torch relay.
