Michael Elvers Tørnes (born 8 January 1986 in Herlev) is a Danish footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for HJK Helsinki. He has played 18 games for various Danish national youth teams.

He had his debut for Brøndby IFs best team in the 67th minute of a 0–0 draw against Flora Tallinn in the UEFA Cup, replacing goalkeeper Casper Ankergren who was sent off. Tørnes kept a clean sheet in the 4–0 second leg win on Brøndby Stadion, which he played for the whole 90 minutes.[2]

In the beginning of the 2010–11 season, Brøndby's first keeper Stephan Andersen, was long-term injured, resulting in Tørnes temporarily taking over his position.[3][4]

During season 2014 Tørnes broke the clean sheet record for Finnish Premier League. Tørnes played 960 minutes consecutively without conceding a goal in either Finnish Premier league matches or in Finnish Cup matches.[5] Old record was 882 minutes by András Vilnrotter.[6]
