Sir Rod Stewart has shared some great news in a recent interview with BBC Radio Two.

The veteran singer, who turned 75 in January, revealed he is feeling 'fitter than ever' and is working out three to four times a week.

Asked whether he was more at risk of coronavirus because of his age, he told Wright: “Oh absolutely, yeah."

I’m 75 and just got over cancer, but I tell you what, I ain’t half fit.

“I work out three or four times a week, and I’m very fortunate because down where we live we have an indoor pool and a wonderful gym, so I don’t think I’ve ever been as fit as I am now as I’ve got nothing else to do.”

Sir Rod was told by doctors that he had prostate cancer in 2016.

He decided to keep news of his illness private at the time of his diagnosis, but later revealed that he had been given the all-clear after around two years of secret treatment.

Sir Rod also underwent knee surgery in the run up to his birthday.

Rod also revealed he has been having a wonderful time in lockdown, with thanks to his stunning wife Penny and the four of his eight children in lockdown with him.

“It’s been pleasurable actually, believe it or not, because I’ve got eight kids and I’ve got four of them here, all living with me.

“It’s been wonderful, we’ve not spent that much time together in so long.

“I’ve got two youngsters and then I’ve got Liam and Renee, they’re both in their 20s.”
