Brazil chooses most handsome grandad

Sao Paulo has chosen the city's most handsome old man in a beauty contest where looks were as important as charisma.

The winner of Mr Elderly was 60-year-old Sergio Cardoso, who drew loud gasps from the crowd of nearly 300 ladies.

The annual pageant is organised by a geriatrics clinic and is aimed at promoting healthy ageing among men and women above 60.
