Mo Farah claims that he is able to run faster without hair weighing him down.

Team GB hero Mo Farah has revealed that he is pleased to be bald because it gives him an advantage on the track.

In an interview for The Jonathan Ross Show, the double-gold medallist claimed: "Having no hair makes me run faster."

The 29-year-old also admitted that he is now "easing down" with his training in order to spend time caring for his newborn twin daughters.

"I am not training as hard now," he said. "I am not doing a lot of running now as the Olympics train you so hard.

"I am easing down. I am not running every day. I am just doing a decent pace.

"My wife does the night shifts [with the babies] and I am doing the mornings and I am watching TV looking after them. I love computer games and just having a laugh with them."

The interview airs tonight on ITV1.
