Great grandmother skydives for 100th birthday - Watch

A great-grandmother in South Africa has celebrated her 100th birthday with a skydive near Cape Town.

Georgina Harwood performed her daredevil feat over Cape Town to raise money for the National Sea Rescue Institute.

It wasn’t even her first jump.

There was time for a tipple once Ms Harwood reached the ground

The centenarian has completed three jumps since turning 92 and next week is planning to go cage diving with sharks.

‘It was wonderful, it was exhilarating,’ said Mrs Harwood, who was accompanied by more than a dozen relatives.

‘I’m trying to think of adjectives to add but it’s difficult – there are so many. It was special.’
