With a saffron turban and a flowing white beard, 101-year-old Fauja Singh finished the Hong Kong Marathon's 6.25-mile race, making him the oldest marathoner in the world.

Nicknamed the Turbaned Torpedo, the Indian-born runner finished the race in 1 hour, 32 minutes and 28 seconds.

"I will remember this day. I will miss it," Singh said minutes after crossing the finish line.

Singh says he will now hang up his sneakers.
