Sir David Attenborough defied his 96 years while speaking to Huw Edwards as they reflected on the life of Queen Elizabeth II today. BBC viewers flocked to social media to share their admiration for the veteran documentary maker who impressed with his spritely looks.

The star of Planet Earth and many other wildlife shows, Sir David Attenborough, was the special guest of the BBC for their coverage of events in Buckingham Palace today. Fans of the legendary filmmaker flocked to Twitter to praise how well they believed he looked. Steve wrote: "How on earth can #davidattenborough be 96?"

• BBC viewers 'switch off' Laura Kuenssberg after nine minutes Some viewers were unable to continue focussing on their day jobs and many were protective of the legendary broadcaster. Hannah Macinnes tweeted: "How to concentrate on other work, as I really should be doing, when BBC News have the great David Attenborough in the studio as a commentator and it's all so strangely compelling." Em penned: "Someone please take care of Sir David Attenborough."

The TV veteran declared: "We are all focussed on the same event that happened a week ago and we are all in this particular state of suspension in between these two acts. "It's impressive to find so many people here, a village in effect, ready for great numbers of people who need to be looked after with food and whatever else. "Also the sheer density of people here from foreign shores, as well as parts of Britain, it's enormously impressive to see everyone." BBC anchor Huw's bloodshot eye sparked fear among some viewers this week, but he has continued to lead the channel's coverage.
