ARE YOU SERIOUS? Lineker quits Twitter to 'spend more time with family'

Former Tottenham and Everton star Gary Lineker has quit Twitter.

The former England striker has elaborated on his reasons for leaving Twitter, and said that he would like to spend more time with his family.

The 51-year-old told The Sun: "I left twitter because it tends to take over and I thought I would try life without it. There is absolutely nothing sinister about the decision at all."

Lineker had become one of the most followed users in Britain - with 1.3million fans - since he started tweeting last year.
