Retired England international Gary Lineker returns to Twitter just eight days after deactivating his account.

Former England international Gary Lineker has reactivated his Twitter account after an eight-day absence.

The ex-Tottenham Hotspur and Everton striker made headlines after he abandoned the social network site for "personal reasons".

The 52-year-old returned on Saturday by tweeting: "Back by no popular demand whatsoever. Glad it never caused any fuss my taking a break ;)."

Meanwhile, Lineker is expected to sign a new contract to continue hosting BBC football highlights and analysis show Match of the Day.
