67-Year Old Muay Thai Fighter Has Had His Final Fight

Khobdan Bor-khor-sor really does live by the mantra "age is just a number", having competed in his final Muay Thai fight at the ripe old age of 67.

Muay Thai Authority have done an in-depth piece on Khobdan, who is in unbelievable physical condition for his age and is a veteran of the sport - having fought for a staggering 50 years.

He's currently training the fighters of tomorrow at a Gym in Khon Kaen but had his final swansong on 10 November against a bloke also in his 60's.

His son, Sing, was in his corner and was so confident that his old man would do the business, he put 70,000 baht (around $2,121) on him winning.

He emerged victorious as well, bowing out in style after a very physical encounter.

Another person doing extraordinary things despite their old age is Jack Reynolds, who completed his third Guinness World Record by throwing himself down a zip wire at the age of 106.

It was a 60-metre high, 400-metre long piece of material with a top speed of 40mph. Might not seem a lot but let's see if you're doing that when you've reached the age of more than a century.

The daredevil broke this new record live on Good Morning Britain back in September because may as well do it on live telly, eh?

And the OAP from Derbyshire didn't do it just for shits and gigs. Oh no, he did it for charity (as if he couldn't get any more LAD-like), completing the amazing task to raise money for the Stroke Association.

As previously mentioned, this isn't the first record Jack has broken. At 105 he rode on a rollercoaster and he had a tattoo, hdone aged 104. He had his nickname 'Jacko' inscribed - as if we couldn't love him any more.

When he took on the zip wire he looked pretty chilled out, and as he flew through a forest he visible sucked in the fresh air. Go on Jack, LAD. He bloody loved it.
