Frankie Dettori left in stitches by superfan’s secrets to looking good aged 102

Centenarian Mary Moore had TV viewers in stitches by telling Frankie Dettori her secrets to looking good.

The 102-year-old, paid a special visit by Flat racing's most famous jockey during her day at the track, won the internet with her hilarious responses.

During a chat with Dettori at Ascot on Friday, Moore chuckled when interviewed by Sky Sports Racing presenter Matt Chapman.

"For all of us struggling with old age, what is the secret to looking as amazing as you?" he asked.

"Sex and gin and tonic!" Moore said.

Full of laughter, Dettori clapped and hugged Moore, who grinned in delight.

Earlier she revealed how she was a superfan of the Italian rider – and was at the racecourse when he rode all seven winners at this meeting 25 years ago.

Dubbed the 'Magnificent Seven,' the incredible feat cost bookies a huge £30 million.

At Friday's fixture, Dettori, a big entertainer in the sport and known for his 'flying dismounts', was pictured pretending to take a bite out of a special cake.

It had the words 'Commemorating the 25th anniversary of your Magnificent Seven' iced on it, with an image of him racing to victory.

Dettori, once again the toast of punters by winning on 11-10 favourite Sunray Major during the card, was in a joyful mood continuing his conversation with Moore.

He gave her a kiss and held her hand while she sat in her wheelchair.

"I think he's a marvellous human being and I watch all of his racing," Moore told viewers.

"When he doesn't win I get angry and I say 'what do you think you're doing?!'

Chapman asked Moore if she enjoys seeing Dettori jumping off his winning horses after a race, a move he is famous for.

"Oh yes!" she replied.

"I have got a picture of him.

"I know all about his family, I know all about his family, his children and his wife…

"I said I'm only going to Ascot if Frankie is riding and they said he is in race number three and I said good!"

Moore told Dettori it was a "great pleasure" and "wonderful" to meet him.

"I might faint in a minute!" she quipped.

Dettori is not at Ascot's fixture on Saturday, where Fujiyama Crest was his seventh winner on Saturday, September 28, 1996.

Instead he travels to Longchamp for five rides, including fans' favourite Stradivarius in the Group 1 Qatar Prix du Cadran.

On Sunday, he will be aboard the Aidan O'Brien-trained Love in the feature Qatar Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe.
