President Rodrigo Duterte is already feeling every year of his 73 years and he has three more years to go as President.

In a speech in Malacanang, Duterte admitted feeling exhausted doing his daily chores, specifically poring through piles of paperwork.

“I’m tired, I’m late because I’m — akala ko kasi uwi na ako ng Davao. So I was upbeat the whole day and I tried to finish all so that I go home without any baggage for the things that I have left behind to do,” said Duterte who regularly flies to Davao City for the weekend.

“I do some signing almost a minimum of 700 signatures a day. Nasira na ang kamay ko tuloy. Nagkaroon ng rayuma, arthritis,” he added.
