Johanna Quaas, the lycra-donning granny whose muscular physique puts Madonna to shame.
At 86 Quass, of Halle, Saxony, would be forgiven for wanting to put her feet up, which she does – over her head that is.
And her gymnastic prowess is not the only trophy in her cabinet, she was once a member of the East German handball champion team, too.
More than fifty years on she still steals the show from her younger rivals, as a multiple time senior champion of artistic gymnastics in Germany.
As she performs routines with the balance, strength and flexibility of a 20-year-old, this geriatric granny could easily be a quarter of her age – were it not for her tell-tale curly bob of snow-white hair and specs balanced on her nose.
