The GQ Men Of The Year Awards returned for their 23rd year on Thursday.

And, Captain Sir Tom Moore ditched his zimmer frame to move freely in his video acceptance speech as he won the Inspiration Awards at the virtual ceremony in association with Hugo Boss.

The former British Army officer raised £ 32.79million for charity during the Covid-19 pandemic by swimming laps in his garden ahead of his 100th birthday.

As he was filmed doing other tours around his property, he spoke of his achievement, he said, “Ahh yes. The turn around the turn. That’s how it all started, I guess.

“At first it was pretty hard. But then when those endorphins kick in, you know it’s hard to stop.

At this point, Captain Sir Tom Moore abandoned his zimmer frame and was caught on camera running away.

He continued, “I guess I’m pretty good at it. I didn’t want to draw attention to myself anymore, ”the star said as his double pretended to limp on a cane as a jogger passed him.

“There was already so much noise about me in the press. Guess that’s just as you think about it, the body follows, continued Captain Sir Tom.

Now his double was to climb into a container and perform some impressive free running moves.

Captain Sir Tom insisted: “I wouldn’t call myself a professional. Just good enough in all of the sport.

Go Captain Sir Tom!  `` But then when those endorphins kick in you know it's hard to stop, '' said Captain Tom who ditched his zimmer frame and was caught on camera running away.

‘Who would have thought? Running jumps, the occasional flip. Yoga and pilates of course. I’m just trying to stay in shape, ”he continued as his double made breathtaking moves.

“Ahh yes and a victory in the half marathon. Not much. Just luck I guess. It’s not really much. I am really at the beginning.

“I need to work on my backflip. Start skateboarding. Let’s not get carried away. Baby walk first, ”the star joked.
