THE BEST MOUSTACHES FROM THE WORLD OF SPORT
 

Richard Hammond said “I truly admire the incredible work Movember do for men all over the UK. It was a no brainer for me to show my support and take part in such a fun shoot and for obvious reasons, become racing legend Nigel Mansell. I have no doubt that many people out there will know of or have been personally affected by cancer and mental health issues, so I would encourage all of you to get behind in the month-long movement this year.”

Ben Miller said “This is my second year supporting Movember. After giving my Salvador Dali last year, this year I have chosen to sport a Bruce Grobbelaar. As a young lad growing up in Crewe, I used to watch him playing on the practice field. Bruce Grobbelaar that is, not Salvador Dali. There were no melting clocks anywhere in sight. Anyway, I definitely prefer this look. It’s now important more than ever for men and all to come together, Grow a Mo and raise as much money as possible. No matter what you type of moustache you sport this year, your efforts will make a huge difference.”

Movember’s Executive Director, Simon Traynor, said: “This incredible and fun campaign was the perfect way for us to inspire as many people as possible to get involved in Movember this year. We have welcomed our stars to re-create a variety of sporting legends who made their own mo’s cool. We want to inspire men to not feel embarrassed by their facial hair, whatever you grow will save a bro. We want men to know that no matter what you grow, your moustaches will save lives.”
