After his marathon effort had kicked off a controversy, the five-year-old Orissa boy Budhia Singh wants to run again.

"I like to run. I am under no pressure," he said even as controversy razes whether such a young child should have been made to run the 65-km run.

His remarks came on a day when Orissa government said it was considering restraining Budhia from running long distances as his medical report said that he should not be subjected to it.
