“I don’t really know, but I do keep to a strict diet. I don’t overeat. I do a little exercise, and I have six hours of sleep,” said Dr Mahathir, who was a panellist along with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.

“If you live a fairly well regulated life you would survive. But if you get some disease which is incurable, there’s nothing you can do.”

This drew a spontaneous remark from Rutte, directed at Ardern.

“It means you and I can still be prime ministers at 90.”

Ardern then replied: “I have to say if I survive to 90 I don’t want to (be prime minister).”
