I don't know about you, but this heatwave we're having is making me look forward to the days of my retirement. Days when I won't have to hate the sun just because it seems to shine on everyone and everything else but me, my badly lit computer screen and the exhaustingly strong office air conditioning.

Then again, I also think about how, when those days arrive, none of the pretty young people at the beach will mind me perving over them since I'll be a weirdly shaped bag of excess skin. And that is terrifying. But maybe also nice.

So, you know, with that in mind, here are a few pictures of olds unashamedly strutting their stuff while on hols in Tenerife to get you thinking about your own mortality.
