Britain's Largest Pensioner

A great-grandad has been named Britain's strongest pensioner - at the age of 75.
Ged Mullane, from Oldham in Lancashire, has beaten competitors up to 15 years his junior to become British Bench Press Champion in the over 60s category.

Ged will now represent Britain in the European Championships in the Czech Republic on 23 October - where he's hoping to win by bench pressing 16-and-a-half stone.

He told the Oldham Advertiser: "I've got 15 years on some of the other competitors, but I'm really looking forward to it all the same."

The father-of-four is certainly no stranger to hard training. In his younger days, the former electrician was a member of the Salford Harriers athletics team.

As part of his keep-fit regime, Ged would run a total of twelve miles to work and back every day - completing the journey quicker than if he took the bus.

"I used to have ten training sessions every week and would sometimes take detours to make up some more miles," he said. "especially if I was training for a race."
