Melbourne, Mar 2 (ANI): Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson has revealed that she will strip down to a small black bikini, and run on an Australian beach this year, to show the world that one can still be fit even at the age of 50.

Ferguson, 49, has sought the help of British soccer ace David Beckhams management to train her in becoming football fit by the time of her birthday in October.

I am going to come down and run along a beach at 50 and be football fit, not just fit fit, News.com.au quoted her as telling the Daily Telegraph.

The duchess has not decided on a beach yet, but suggested it could be Bondi.

She has been recommended personal trainer Neil Lewis.

Ferguson, who is also very passionate about healthy lifestyle, and in the US served as spokeswoman for Weight Watchers International, was shocked to find that cardiovascular disease was now the world’’s number one killer.

I tell the people of Australia not to give up, she said.

Firstly, I hate the word obese. I think it is already negative.

I think that everybody has to do it for their own lifestyle to realise their own health.

In other words they have to take things slowly and say right, I”m not doing this because I have to get into a pair of blue jeans, I need to do this because if I don”t I”m going to die of heart disease, she added. (ANI)
