Despite the old age, he suffers only from only minor arthritis and sight loss.

"I stopped delivering babies when my eyesight got bad, but I do rounds at the nursing stations and operating rooms," the Sun quoted him, as saying.

He added: "I remember the births with complications more than the perfect ones. Once you've done several thousand they start blending together."
