Bodybuilder, 93, with winning muscles

At 93, Dr Charles Eugster cuts a dapper figure in his navy suit but looks just as good in Lycra.

The former dentist took up bodybuilding just six years ago, aged 87, but looks very at home in the gym surrounded by whirring fitness machines.

His reasons for picking up weights in his 80s are simple.

"The idea is to to turn the heads of the sexy young 70-year-old girls on the beach," he told BBC News.
