Lando Norris has shaven his head after promising to do so following a £10,000 fundraiser for charities fighting the coronavirus.

The McLaren driver broadcasted the event on the streaming platform Twitch, with over 35,000 people tuning in to watch the 20-year-old take to the electric razor.

Norris raised the money as part of ‘Stream Aid’, which has collectively raised over £2 million in the battle against COVID-19. 

As Norris is isolating in his home, he performed the job himself. Norris is continuing to stream on Twitch as the Formula 1 season is put on hold.

Norris recently took a pay cut at McLaren, who opted to lay off staff amid the ongoing pandemic.

    When some ones says shave, they mean the wet type with the blade ;p

    Not clipper-ed or kippered.
