Believe it or not, there are thousands of centenarians in the UK. In fact, in 2013, it was estimated that there were around 14,000 100-year-olds in the country.

As healthcare improves and life expectancy grows, this figure is likely to increase, but just how do we celebrate this milestone achievement?

A new graphic, created by home lift supplier TK Encasa, takes a look at how centenarians are recognised in different countries. It also documents the major events they have experienced during their lifetimes. For more information, view the visual in full below.
