He arrived at the gym to be greeted with a birthday balloon and a card signed by many of the people he chats to during his regular workouts.

In a typical week, he trains three times for one hour. In that time he does six exercises, with three sets of 20 reps at each station.

Cwmbran Life met Mr Williams to hear about his love of the Stadium and keeping fit. He said he has been attending Cwmbran Stadium since it was built in the early 1970s and enjoyed regular exercise with his family, children and grandchildren.

Over the years he’s used the venue for many sports including badminton, squash, swimming and line-dancing.
