Late last year we were lucky enough to have the chance to interview Dr Charles Eugster, the world's fittest nonagenarian, and his physical trainer and coach Sylvia Gattiker at his hotel during a flying visit to London.

 

Here are some extracts from the interview, with particular relevance to his next attempt, at the British Masters Athletics Indoor Championships in March, to break the 60m and 200m UK, European and maybe even World Indoor records for his age group, 95-plus.
