A 90 year-old pensioner and former boxer chased a burglar out of his house and followed him into a nearby ASDA before smashing him in the face and taking his wallet back.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was in his house in Hull when a stranger came to his door pretending to have injured his leg. 

When the pensioner went to get Nicholas Norton a cloth to clean his 'wound', Norton grabbed his wallet and ran out of the house.

The retiree, once a middleweight boxing champion in the Navy reserves, dashed out of the house and followed Norton in his car to a nearby ASDA.

Heading inside, the brave pensioner grabbed hold of the thief at the checkout and punched him in the face before taking his wallet back.

The 90 year-old said: 'When he stole my wallet, I just wanted to get it back. I know that pensioners are being robbed all the time and it's not right. 

'I have problems with my blood pressure, my legs and my hands but I still went after him to get my wallet back.'
