Watch: Former Spurs striker has head shaved live on air for doubting Leicester
Football pundit Mido was convinced that Mauricio Pochettino’s side would win the title.

LEICESTER CITY’S REMARKABLE rise to the top of English football has warmed the hearts of many but has also left plenty of their outspoken doubters red-faced.

One such sceptic was former Spurs and Middlesbrough striker Mido who vowed to have his head shaved live on air before beIN Sports’ coverage of Leicester’s 3-1 win against Everton on Saturday.

The ex-Egypt international, who works as a football pundit these days, was adamant that his former club would beat the Foxes to the Premier League title but Mauricio Pochettino’s side ultimately came up short when the pressure was on.

So off went the 33-year-old’s wavy black locks, much to the amusement of his colleagues.

It could have been worse for Mido though, at least he didn’t commit to presenting the show in his underpants if the Foxes won the league.
