"What of it?"

Adams was discussing what he gets up to in his spare time to relax when he said: "Yeah, I do it naked.

"I don't do it with any great expertise, just the joy of it - the dog does it with me. It saves me taking him for a walk. We just go out and bounce for a while.

"The dog loves it. In fact, I caught the dog doing it on his own. Two dogs belong to my grandchildren. They got a new one at Christmas, but they are not very good at cleaning up, so that falls on me.

"I have had a dog since I was four or five, so I wouldn't be without one. We trampoline when we get together, to make up for lost time. I get home most weekends, sometimes not for the entire weekend. There is something special about hillwalking with a dog."
