Sir David Attenborough was interviewed on Radio 1 this morning and naturally it got people talking.

In fact, so many people that his name began to trend on Twitter.

Thing is, when a national treasure of a certain age trends on Twitter people tend to assume the worst.

See?

Thankfully the old boy is absolutely fine.

On a completely separate note, here he is saying boo to a sloth.

In fact, it simply became a lovely opportunity to reaffirm how much we love the man.

Oh, and here he is playing with a baby rhino...

And it's not just Twitter that assumes the worst...

Sir David, we salute you and wish you many more years of bringing us your soothing tones.
