Martin Kenyon .. Vaccine hero

Martin Kenyon .. Vaccine hero

A91-year-old London grandfather who delighted the world with his plain-speaking approach to the coronavirus jab asked Piers Morgan: “Now who are you?” during a hilarious follow-up interview.

Martin Kenyon, who was among the first people in the world to receive the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine became an online sensation after saying he was late for his appointment because he “couldn’t damn well find anywhere to park my car”.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain the following day, Mr Kenyon said the attention he had received since was “rather ridiculous” and he hoped it was just “24-hour nonsense.”

Appearing via video link from his home in Stockwell, south London, the 91-year-old explained that he booked his vaccination appointment because it seemed “sensible to get on with it” and he was looking forward to hugging his “two delicious grandkids”.

After explaining to the US broadcaster that he had received the jab at Guy’s Hospital in London Bridge before going off for a “rather nasty lunch”, he retracted his assessment of the meal.

He told his GMB hosts: “I don’t know why I said that – it was delicious”.

Revealing that the lunch consisted of a prawn sandwich and some orange squash, he said he did not normally eat sandwiches but, anyway, it was a “deeply uninteresting subject.”

The elderly Londoner went on to reinforce his criticism of driving conditions in the capital.

Probed on his tardiness for his historic vaccine appointment, Mr Kenyon said parking at Guy’s Hospital was “absolute hell”.

He explained that he would normally take the bus but had been using his car more during the pandemic to “avoid being poisoned by other people”.
