Retired dentist Dr Charles Eugster has been dubbed “The World’s Fittest Old Age Pensioner” and he has certainly earned his nickname.

The 95-year-old, who is a competitive oarsman and bodybuilder added another accolade to his already impressive list of achievements on Sunday when he set a new age group World Record in the indoor 200m sprint.

The super-fit pensioner took to Twitter after the race to thank his followers for their support.

Dr Eugster took up exercise a decade ago at the age of 85 and has sincehoned his fitness, excelling at competitive level.

“I hoped getting fit would stop me ageing,” he told The Telegraph in 2013.

“It was pure vanity, really. I looked a mess and I was having a late-life crisis. My body was degenerating. I thought: ‘Who knows about muscles?’ So, when I was 87, I joined a bodybuilding club.”
