Tour de France winner Chris Froome is in need of a hair transplant

Congratulations to British cyclist Chris Froome who won his third Tour de France title in Paris on Sunday.

Chris totally dominated this year’s event and now he is off to the Olympics in Rio to see if he can win gold in the time trial and the road race events.

To win the Tour de France once is some achievement – to do it three times is remarkable and ranks Froome as one of the greatest cyclists of all time alongside such legends as Miguel Indurain, Bernard Hinault  and Eddy Merckx.

Chris, 31, is showing clear signs of male pattern baldness in his hairline, particularly around his temples. He would benefit from a hair transplant now to bolster his hair in these areas.

His hair loss is likely continue over the next few fears. Around 40% of men suffer some kind of hair loss by the time they are 40.

Many prominent male sport superstars like Chris are taking action to remedy their hair and protect their lucrative image rights.

We all know about the example of Wayne Rooney, the England football captain, who has had at least two FUE hair transplants. Wayne started losing his hair in his late teens.

He quickly realised he would be a much more attractive proposition to sponsors if he bolstered his hair. You can appreciate that huge international brands might think twice before signing up a bald or balding star as their global ambassador.

At Crown Clinic we have worked with a number of big sports stars including Didi Hamann, the former Liverpool, Man City and Newcastle United midfielder, and the Olympic diver Peter Waterfield. We work with lots of other sports stars who would rather not go public about their procedures.
