At a time when Michael Schumacher is supposedly heading off to enjoy a well-earned retirement, at the ripe old age of 37 - OK, he's 38 tomorrow (Wednesday 3) - F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone is included in a list of powerful pensioners.

The 76-year-old is placed third, behind Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson (65) and TV wildlife presenter and environmentalist David Attenborough (80) in a list of the most powerful pensioners compiled by Virgin Money.

"This report highlights just a few of the many successful older people in the world and shows that later life really doesn't have to be a time for pipes and slippers," said Gordon Lishman, director general of Age Concern. "Older people have a vast amount to contribute to society and should be able to continue working well into their older age if they want to."

In the list of 'golden oldies', Ecclestone was placed ahead of The Queen (80), Nelson Mandela (88), media mogul Rupert Murdoch (75), fashion designer Ralph Lauren (67) and football legend Pele (66).
