Editor's Viewpoint: The old age story

You're only as old as you feel - a motto that certainly applies to Bobbie Bell from Londonderry's Waterside.

For, just weeks from his 98th birthday, he still plays a few holes of golf and goes to the gym twice weekly. And his work-outs are better than those of some men who are decades younger.

He is living proof a positive attitude - plus good genes - can make a mockery of age. He is also a great advertisement for the innovative GP programme which referred him to the gym to increase his mobility after a number of falls last winter. Keep putting the youngsters to shame, Bobbie.
