Gary Lineker couldn’t move his eyebrow on TV after having Botox treatment

Gary Lineker has stated he will never have a facelift after Botox left him unable to raise his eyebrow on camera.

Speaking on the MidPoint podcast, hosted by fellow BBC colleague Gabby Logan, the Match of the Day broadcaster said: "I don’t mind a bit of pampering, massages. I quite like a facial or a head massage – I love a head massage."

But asked if he would go any further, he added: "A facelift? God no. No. Why? I did Botox once as well, years ago, and I just looked ridiculous. I couldn’t raise my eyebrow. I went on telly to give it a little look on camera, but it wasn’t moving."

As well as looking his best for the camera, the former Tottenham Hotspur and England striker revealed he hits the gym "three or four times a week", despite admitting he has always "hated training."

"It's [Mondays are] usually fairly quiet," responded Lineker when asked about his regular routine at the start of the week. "I always do the gym on Monday mornings. I work out three or four times a week and do pilates as well.

"I think the older you get the more you need to do really. I think it's quite easy in mid-life to just give up when you start seeing the waistline expand a little bit.

"It's funny I hate training. I've never liked it in my entire life but I like it even less when I miss it because I think it's important. But I do love the feeling after, in the shower, thinking you've actually done it."

Lineker added: "The problem with training [as a footballer] was that I don't think it was particularly thought out very well. I think it's probably changed now. I was a striker so I wanted to practice and wanted to train the things that would hone my skills.

"So I wanted to practice finishing every day and was perfectly happy doing hard fitness training but most of it was five-a-side with little goals and it seemed pretty pointless. Even doing a shooting session, they'd get the whole team to do it.. you'd get one shot every 10 minutes. Complete waste of time."
