Watch Stephen Nolan on holiday as he tells of surfer dream in Santa Monica

BBC presenter Stephen Nolan has told of how he would love to be a surfer and a runner on Santa Monica beach.

The BBC journalist is currently on holiday in Los Angeles in America.

He interrupted his holiday on Tuesday to present a special programme on the political crisis in Northern Ireland which saw Martin McGuinness step down as deputy First Minister.

The BBC presenter is known for his heated interviews with politicians debating the hard-hitting topical issues of the day.

Nolan filmed a Facebook live video from the beach and invited his fans and followers to watch a surfer and a runner.

He said: "Let's watch this. I'd love to be able to do that or to be fit enough to do that, I don't think that will ever happen.

"I would so love to do that in my life, I can hardly walk never mind go out on a surf board.

Then as he sees a jogger going past he adds: "One of the other things I'd love to do is jog along this, I'd never be able to do that either, too far gone.

"There's a guy there doing what I'd like to be able to do. Look at that for a lifestyle, just along the beach."

The BBC broadcaster with the self-styled "biggest show in the country" is a household name in Northern Ireland.
