A great-grandma has revealed her secret to a long life after celebrating her 100th birthday.

Irene Sproston, celebrated her 100th birthday with a nice cup of her favourite Typhoo tea. “I kept thinking I would never get to 100 but I have managed it. “I have always kept busy and never been idle. Life has been rough and tumble, but you have to keep going. There’s nothing else for it. There are lots worse off than me.” As well as drinking eight cups of tea a day, Irene said keeping busy and being kind has helped her to reach the milestone birthday. “I’ve always tried to be kind, and people have been kind to me in return. I’ve got a brilliant family and lots of friends. I’ve got a lot to be thankful for and I feel quite overwhelmed,” she said.


A man hid his rugby career from wife

Levani Botia did not mention to his wife that he was a rugby player until things got out of hand as his partner did not like rugby players. Botia’s wife Emele Veivuke said she was thankful for the television or otherwise she would have not known that he was a rugby player. “When I first met him, he told me that he was a prison officer but he lied to me. Out of all our conversations, he didn’t mention that he was playing rugby,” she said. “In the first instance in 2011, he told me that he had to go to Nadi to attend a workshop. Little did I realise, he was representing the country in the Pacific Games in New Caledonia.”
