One war veteran has become the guy every woman wants after his granddaughter tweeted about him turning up to visit his wife of 57 years on their anniversary.
His wife was in hospital, but World War II vet Jim Russell did not let that stop him from donning a tux, buying a huge bunch of flowers and taking some chocolates for good measure.
His wife claimed:
Being in a hospital bed, you get bored so when they came in, it made me smile like the younger days when we were dancing.
This is literally the best thing ever.
