Golfer Gary Player agrees to pose nude for ESPN magazine's Body Issue at 77 years of age.

South African golfer Gary Player has agreed to pose nude for ESPN magazine's Body Issue at the age of 77.

He will become the oldest athlete to strip for the magazine, which has also snapped up US tennis star John Isner and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for the issue.

Player wrote on Twitter: "I was at first hesitant, but @ESPNmag's Body Issue celebrates the human body. No matter what your age, we should all look after ourselves!"

Player became a golf pro in 1953.
