colored marks on potato leaves

I was wondering if those marks on the potatoes that i am growing are affected by blight, i am growing Sarpo Mira Seed Potatoes, as i am aware these potatoes are blight resistant, so would any body confirm if those marks are blight
That's not blight
From what I can see those spots are just on the older leaves - I think they're just the wear and tear of old age (it comes to us all) - they've been exposed to the sun and the wind and the rain for quite a while - they've done their job and they're coming to the end of their life - I should think your potatoes are more or less ready to harvest.
hi thank you for your reply, they are getting harvested shortly, I have just started growing my own stuff, so it's great it's not blight
Great let us know how your potatoes are - some photos would be good
ok. i will post photos of the potatoes when i harvest them
I wish my potato leaves looked so good as they do, I think that I might spray mine with baking soda next year as I believe that it gives them a boost of some element that they are missing although I don't think that it makes much difference to the final crop.
