We'll just have to wait for the court's ruling to find out whether Ratelband gets to drive whatever vehicle it is that he thinks 49-year-olds are allowed to drive that 69-year-olds aren't.
The pensioner was born on 11 March 1949, but says he feels at least 20 years younger and wants to change his birth date to 11 March 1969.
"If I put on Tinder that I am 69, I will not get a response.[As] 49, with that face of mine, then I'm rammed", he said.

In Australia, for example, many older people struggle to find work once they reach their 50s and 60s, despite the fact that it is illegal for companies to specifically discriminate against candidates due to their age.
