This is the hilarious moment a 100-year-old man fails to blow out his birthday candles because he has forgotten he is still wearing his Covid-19 face shield.
Teobaldo Perez was being filmed by family members as he celebrated his 100th birthday with them in Ocala, Florida.
The grandfather was wearing a full face shield to protect him from the threat of coronavirus.

After his failed effort to blow out the candles, one of the guests removes Mr Perez’s face shield
But, the footage shows, the grandfather has apparently become so used to wearing the mask that he does not notice it until he tries to extinguish the three candles on the sky blue cake.
His family erupt into laughter at Mr Perez’s gaffe and a relative lifts the shield off the good-humoured birthday boy’s face.
Freed from the visor, Mr Perez raises himself to his full height and took a deep breath before blowing out the candles.
The video was posted online by his grand daughter Valerie Gomez, who is a tax coordinator and the owner of Laffittee Bakery in Florida.
She said: ‘He laughed when he realised he was still wearing his mask and obviously everyone at the same time reminded him he was wearing it.’
