NHS hero Captain Sir Tom Moore features not only in the new Guinness World Records 2021 book - but also on the cover as well.

He made the cut by being named under "Most money raised by a charity walk (individual)" after walking 100 laps of his back garden for the NHS.

Originally hoping to raise £1,000, Captain Tom, from Marston Moretaine, raised a staggering £27,699,581 (€31,755,400, US$34,504,800) and the rest is history.

If you take a look the cover, you can see the 100-year-old in the bottom right-hand corner.
