80-year-old model reshapes China's views on aging

Wang Deshun, who is developing a cult-like following in China, says he "can't live" without going to the gym.

    In China, a pensioner has proved that old age is no barrier to becoming a catwalk model.

    Wang Deshun, who recently turned 80, is also a mime artist and actor.

    The octogenarian has the physic of a man half his age, but he only began going to the gym 30 years ago.

    Al Jazeera's Adrian Brown reports from Beijing on the grandfather who is developing a cult-like following.
