“Reaching 100 is quite something. Reaching 100 with such interest in me and huge generosity from the public is very overwhelming,” Captain Tom told the BBC. “People keep saying what I have done is remarkable, however it’s actually what you have done for me which is remarkable. Please always remember, tomorrow will be a good day.”

Prince Charles and wife Camilla paid tribute on Instagram to Captain Tom, praising him for his charity work amid the coronavirus crisis.
