Frenchman Robert Marchand

Most centenarians find it difficult to walk but age has not slowed down 102-year-old French cyclist Robert Marchand, who has broken his own world record.

According to the report, Mr Marchand set the previous record for the over-100 category two years ago and outdid himself by riding almost 17 miles in an hour – 1.6 miles further.

Wearing a skin-tight bright yellow jersey and purple shorts, the athlete smiled and raised his arms after completing the gruelling ride, supported by two assistants.
