Elderly bodybuilder fights off burglar

A man has been hospitalised in New York, after breaking into the home of an 82-year-old bodybuilder.

Willie Murphy used a table - and even her own body - to stop the man who broke into her house last week.

She lives alone - but spends most of her day lifting weights.

New York police have described her as "tough as nails".

The retired social worker is able to dead-lift more than 100 kilograms and holds records at state and national level.

She won a competition earlier this year.

The man, who was reportedly drunk, broke into her home last Thursday.

Local media reports the man was hospitalised, while Ms Murphy is not pressing charges.
