Paul and Nancy Go for a Run


Keeping fit: Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell go for a jog in North London

Fifty years ago, the Beatles' She Loves You was at number one in the British charts.

But Paul McCartney looked just like any other jogger as he exercised with his wife Nancy Shevell in North London on Monday.

The 71-year-old singer looked like he was taking his workout seriously as he stepped out in a warm padded jacket, hooded sweatshirt, Adidas jogging bottoms and red and blue trainers.

His 54-year-old wife Nancy Shevell looked chic in a petrol grey coat, a lilac hooded top, sports leggings and black trainers.

Meanwhile, the star showed his passion for a different activity when he paid to have the sleeve of his latest album New printed on flags during the Kyushu Grand Sumo Tournament in the city of Fukuoka, Japan.

'Bizarrely Macca really got into Sumo Wrestling when he first toured Japan (as a solo artist) in 1993,' his spokesman told NME.

'He took his crew to one of the matches when they were over there recently and was explaining to everyone the rules and the scoring and how it all worked.'

Paul also attended the finale last month, where he was able to see his album cover displayed at the stadium. 

Paul McCartney released his 16th studio album New in October.

The album includes work with producers Mark Ronson, Paul Epworth, and Giles Martin, the son of long-term Beatles producer George Martin.

The album, his first in six years, charted at number 3 in the UK charts and number 2 in the Japanese charts - just behind Big Bang's Seungri's solo debut album - selling 23,000 copies in the first week.

According to the Japan Daily Press this is the first time that a musician over 70 years old has broken into the Top 10.

Paul recently toured Japan, South America, Europe and North America in his Out There! tour - his first since 2002.

While I love these two almost as much as I love running, someone needs to tell them that when you run in the winter you don't run in winter clothing.

You layer moisture wicking clothing according to the outside temps and the amount you sweat. A winter hat is OK. Winter coats? Ah, no.

Just trying to help them be cool runners instead of just being cool in general.
