Daily Mail. Meet the pole-dancing pensioner

Photojournalist Vladimir Yakovlev created photo series, The Age Of Happiness, to promote positive ageing. He met a figure skater, dancers, skydiving fanatics, martial artists and a club DJ in their 70s, 80s and 90s.

Meanwhile, in Novosibirsk, Russia, an Aikido group of over-60s includes Nina Melnikova, 73, and Antonina Kulikova, 73, who’ve been practicing the Japanese martial art for seven years.

The women train twice a week for around three hours a session and perform highly complex throws and pins.
