A randy Serbian OAP singer has sparked outrage by saying it is "better to die of coronavirus than not have good sex in three months".
Serbian star Andrija "Era" Ojdanić, 73, who is the father of six children and has referred to himself as a "womaniser" in the past, made the statement on social media for his army of followers.
The OAP vocalist, who has admitted that he likes younger women, posted a snap of him wearing a face mask with the message: "Better to die of coronavirus (COVID-19) than not have good sex in three months."
Online, one commented: "There is no medicine available for people like you."
Another said: "How are you going to protect yourself from STDs?"
However, one joked: "He is still in good form!"
