TORONTO, March 10 (Reuters) - Toronto's main stock index tumbled more than 2 percent to hit its lowest since Feb. 1 on Thursday morning, pressured by disappointing Chinese growth data and a debt downgrade for Spain.

The Toronto Stock Exchange's S&P/TSX composite index .GSPTSE fell for a fourth straight session, down 278.61 points, or 2.01 percent, to 13,606.10. All of the index's 10 main sectors were lower, led by more than 3 percent drops in both the hefty energy and materials groups. (Reporting by Ka Yan Ng; editing by Peter Galloway)
