George Stewart, 88, tennis star
Having TB as a child should not be a deterrent to becoming a very active sportsman in later life.
Take the case of 88 year old George Stewart from Scotland.
He has just won the Super Seniors World Tennis Championships in New Zealand.
He plays tennis four times a week and still skis.
He says:”I was always interested in sport but I had a very unfortunate childhood in Glasgow.
I was plagued with TB and was able to do very little. That’s perhaps the reason I was so keen to play later in life.”
He took up tennis in his 50s and is ranked 10th in the world for his age.
