The question is entirely relevant, and if one feels that the interviewer has not gone through your CV, or he is just wasting time, then you are entirely off the track.
Interviewers very often ask "Tell me about yourself." It's a way to break the ice and make you feel relaxed during the interview. Through this innocent question he learns a lot about your personality
Share with him a balanced amount of information, and proceed as indicated:
Talk about some personal interests which don't relate directly to your work. Examples might include a hobby which you are passionate about like astronomy, chess, singing, golf, skiing, tennis, or whatever. Also mention things like jogging and you. These passions show you care for both your mind and body. Attach this to some volunteer work as an icing for the cake
You can now transition to sharing some key professional skills that would help you to add value if you were hired for your target job.
Be prepared to add a few qualities, skills and/or areas of expertise which would help you to excel in the job. However, be careful not to overwhelm the interviewer with infoglut. You can say you are endowed with other skills as well, which will become evident as the interview proceeds
At first, you should only mention the asset and refer only scantly to some proof of how you have tapped it to your advantage.
