He wants to be 49 again

The Advertiser - - NEWS -

A 69-YEAR-OLD who has strug­gled to find love on Tin­der has come up with a novel so­lu­tion – and asked a court to wipe two decades off his age.

Emile Ratel­band told a tri­bunal in the Nether­lands that he wanted to al­ter his of­fi­cial date of birth in the same way that trans­gen­der peo­ple could change sex.

“I feel young, I am in great shape and I want this to be recog­nised be­cause I feel abused, ag­grieved and dis­crim­i­nated against be­cause of my age,” Mr Ratel­band said.

“I am a young god.”
