Singer-turns-runner Toon Bodyslam reached Suphan Buri on Thursday, hours after a big crowd of well-wishers and three caparisoned elephants greeted the rock star in Ayutthaya.

On Day 29 of his 2,191km marathon, Toon and his team arrived in Muang district in Suphan Buri on Thursday night, with people flocking to a PTT petrol station to welcome their hero home.

"After 29 days, I was finally home," he told the crowd. "Thank you all for people of Suphan Buri."
