A British grandfather has become the world’s oldest skydiver, at the age of 101 and 38 days.
Verdun Hayes has broken the world record after jumping from a plane at over 4,500 meters. The centenarian has completed the tandem skydive along with three generations of his family.
The grandfather only tried skydiving for the first time last year when he reached 100. With his jump, Hayes surpassed the record of a Canadian skydiver who jumped aged 101 and three days, in June 2013.
