An 87-year-old man is starting a degree in Ecological and Environment Protection at a university in Russia.
Alexander Sadalov, who left school 78-years-ago, has a passion for salt-water lakes and wants to study their healing effects.
Now he's about to undertake the study at the institution in Novosibirsk.
The pensioner, whose wife died three years ago, was born in 1927, has three daughters, four grandsons and a grand-grand-son.
Mr. Sadalov told: "I would like my student universites to call me grandpa, not old man, because I am still in my powers and I would go angry otherwise"
