Last Updated: 19/12/16 10:31am
Britain’s oldest footballer Dickie Borthwick has just started a new chapter in his career with Portland Town at the age of 81.
Dickie started his lengthy career in the Scottish Highlands at the age of 12 and he had a trial with Ross County 70 years ago.
He has played over twice as many games as Ryan Giggs and his goalscoring record is up there with the likes of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Sky Sports News HQ caught up with the experienced forward who is now embarking on the next stage of his incredible career.
Dickie puts his fitness down to quitting his 30-a-day smoking habit, drinking tea, and eating a bowl of porridge before every game.
