Young at heart: Elderly couple spends all night at rave club

Age is just a number for one elderly couple from Poland, who spent Sunday night drinking tequila and ballroom dancing at one of the hottest DJ nightclubs in London.
A photo shared on Facebook Monday shows a young man posing with a much older man and woman at the trendy Fabric nightclub in London. The older man and woman are dressed in their Sunday best, while the young man, identified on Facebook as Jacob Husley, is wearing a T-shirt and holding a drink.
"What an amazing couple," Husley wrote on Facebook. "Both in their late seventies, had purchased tickets online in Poland, after reading a club review of Fabric in the newspaper."
The elderly man and woman were at Fabric for "WetYourSelf night," which is described on the club's website as a night for "serious dancefloor hedonism."
The City of London's tourism page describes Fabric as a "legendary mega-club, playing a variety of electro, house music, breakbeat, and drum'n'bass."
Husley says, in the post, that the couple arrived at Fabric when the doors opened, and planned to stay through the night until closing time at 6 a.m. They were reportedly in the city to visit their daughter.
"I told them they had free bar, two shots of tequila to start, but after that (they) asked if they could have cups of tea," he wrote.
Husley says the couple took to the dancefloor to show off their ballroom-style moves, but they didn't dance too long because the woman was using a crutch and "didn't walk too well."
Fabric offered the couple a shout-out on Twitter on Monday, in response to the photo. "S/O (shoutout) to these two for showing us how it's done @WetYouSelf last night!"
Husley says he and his friends paid for the couple to take a taxi home at 5 a.m., so they didn't have to wait for transit to start running at 6 a.m.
"They said they had a great time and loved the crowd and vibe," Husley said. He added that there was "so much humour, love and playfulness between these two.
"Our bodies might age but our souls are timeless."
