Man was 105 and is survived by two sons and a daughter.

Gurdev said that she was admitted to Derabassi Ayurvedic hospital and breathed her last at around 1 pm today.

 "She suffered a heart attack. She was doing fine but we do not know what suddenly happened," Singh said.

Kaur had not been keeping good health for the past some months. She was admitted to Ayurvedic hospital in Derabassi in Mohali.

Milind Soman took to twitter to pay condolences. "Run in peace Sardarni Man Kaur, happiness forever!" Soman wrote. 

Born on March 1, 1916, Kaur was known as the "Miracle Mom from Chandigarh".

Kaur took to running at the ripe age of 93.

She had won her first medal in 2007 at the Chandigarh Masters Athletics meet, in which she ran "for the heck of it" after seeing Gurdev, eldest of her three children, take part in a race in Patiala.

She shot to fame after winning the 100 metre sprint at the World Masters Games in Auckland in 2017 and held several world records.

She had also won golds in track and field events at the World Masters Athletic Championship in Poland.
