The 58-year-old singer has been blind since he was 12, according to the Daily Mail, but engages in a physically active lifestyle. TMZ has reported on Bocelli skiing, windsurfing and bike riding in the past. Bocelli even told the Daily Mail that he has been riding horses since he was seven.

“It’s my culture. I love the challenge,” he said. “I made my parents suffer a lot when I was younger. Every day I take risks with my life. With the bicycle, with the horses, in the sea, everywhere. I probably have an angel. A very careful guardian angel.”
