I published a few days ago but here is another version with his statement:

British man wins ₤25,000 on his own life

A British man literally bet on his life to win ₤25,000 from the bookies.

Alec Holden celebrated his 100th birthday yesterday after he beat the bookmakers with a wager that he would live for a century.

He had placed a ₤100 bet almost 10 years ago and the retired engineer says a daily diet of porridge and playing chess was the key to his longevity – as was remembering to keep breathing.
