London, Dec 2 (ANI): A 44-year-old magician from Hong Kong has been named the world's No 1 Santa at an annual tournament in northern Sweden.

Jimmy Chan pipped eight other contestants from around the world, including Burundi and Australia, at the Santa Claus Winter Games in Gaellivare to land the honour.

The contestants took part in a series of challenges including reindeer races, porridge eating and chimney climbing before Chan emerged as winner, the Telegraph reported.

He said his "cheerful attitude" was the key to his success.

Chan has worked as a magician and a Santa Claus for 17 years in Hong Kong. (ANI)
