Were holding high political office simply a matter of intellect there is no reason why a leader cannot continue into their eighties.

Well, it’s not, as you point out. There is also a real and measurable decline in the ability to process information quickly that cannot be ignored.

so there must be serious questions asked about whether someone of 76 or even older will be able to cope for the next eight years.

Quite right.
