Surprisingly, age is no worry (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

agonise

Here is my best explanation:

'worry' is the definition.

(seen before)

'surprisingly age is no' is the subsidiary indication.

'surprisingly' is an anagram indicator.

'age'+'is'+'no'='ageisno'

'ageisno' anagrammed gives 'agonise'.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for agonise that I've seen before include "Be in torments of indecision", "Suffer extreme mental pain", "Struggle mentally", "Worry intensely", "Suffer great pain over something", "Torment oneself", "Fret, worry inordinately", "Worry greatly (over something); I go sane (anag.)", "Undergo great anguish" and "Suffer torment".)
