The wonderful old gal you see before you is Ase Marie Nordhagen who, despite turning 90 earlier in the week, is still more handy with a football than most of us will ever be.

The great-grandmother from the small town of Sauda began juggling as a schoolgirl, and claims a personal record of 1,003 kick-ups which she set in April of 1940.

Nattering away to Norwegian paper Dagbladet, Ase revealed that she still “trains” twice a day as she can’t resist the lure of the football she keeps in her hallway at home.

I am so old now that I’ve gone into childhood again, you know?

I think [juggling] is so fun. That was why I decided to start.

I never sit quietly. I guess I’m [still doing it] because I’m not like other people!

You can certainly say that again, Ase…
