Jørgen Leth in a wheelchair

It is not always easy to be Leth.

on Thursday morning landed the 81-year-old Jørgen Leth in the Copenhagen Airport, and in spite of verdensmandens age was a somewhat surprising sight that met the travellers.

The popular Tour de France, commentator, film maker and journalist sat namely in a wheelchair and was waiting for his suitcase at the baggage carousel.


Dressed in youthful white sneakers he had rested his feet on the wheelchair footrest, while he spoke, with a to help partially disabled people from falck's assistancecenter at the airport.

As suitcase after a long time of waiting appeared, rolled the helper Jørgen Leth out of the arrivals hall, where his son Asger Leth, was waiting for him.

the Airport to help partially disabled people however, did not Asger and rolled eagerly Jørgen Leth in the opposite direction, why Asger had småløbe after them in order to give his father a velkomstkrammer.


Even if the wheelchair belongs to the airport and not one that he is permanently sitting in, he was not driving around in it because of an accident or something that happened on the journey.

on the other hand the age, which is gradually taking its toll in the bentøjet.

- Well I'm not so good at walking, he said, the Extra Bladet met him in the airport.

Jørgen Leth worked in spite of the mode of transportation of good cheer, and would like to tell you about to sit in a wheelchair, but the son Asger had immediately more busy.

- No, we will not and do an interview about it now, said he, as he got the helper to push Jørgen Leth in the right direction out of Copenhagen Airport.


When you hear Jørgen Leths crisp voice in the light rail in Aarhus or in his radio program 'Ask Jørgen' at Radio 24syv, you do not think that he is up in years. But he is great-grandfather, and fills the 82 year 14. June.

this is Why it is also no secret that the body recent years have teased him. When he turned 80, he told to Euroman that the legs no longer followed with the tempo he wanted.

'I'm looking at the ground when I go, and I think the balance is hell. It annoys me insanely much. I get angry at myself over the fact that everything takes so long, and that it is hard to get the shoes on. I'm becoming furious, shouts, and cries,' he said to the magazine.
