Nonagenarian former wrestler, Ramajit Raghav, breaks his own record after becoming father, again aged 96

Ramjit, who credits his astonishing virility to a life-long abstinence from drugs and alcohol, told reporters he: "can make love like any 25-year-old man"

A nonagenarian former wrestler, who was a bachelor for almost nine decades, has broken his own record after becoming a father aged 96.

Ramajit Raghav and his 52-year-old wife, Shakuntala Devi, had their second child - a healthy baby boy - earlier this month.

The pensioner, who met his wife in Kharkhoda village in Sonepat district nearly 17 years ago, first came to media attention when he became the world's oldest father at 94, beating a previous record set by an Indian farmer Nanu Ram Jogi when he was 90 in 2007.

Ramjit, who credits his astonishing virility to a life-long abstinence from drugs and alcohol, told reporters he: "can make love like any 25-year-old man".

'I do it three or four times a night,' he told reporters outside his home in Haryana, India. 'My neighbours are jealous and they keep asking me for my secret but all I tell them is that it is God's will.

‘I'm healthy and I enjoy sex with my wife. I think it's very important for a husband and wife to have sex regularly and when she asks I will go on all night but for the sake of my child I've put our needs aside for now.

'I care for my wife and I give her everything she needs. She is a very happy woman.'

Villagers in Kharkhoda village are said to be sceptical about Raghav's claims, expressing doubts over his virility, and questioning whether the children are indeed his.
