Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg has hair transplant surgery
Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg has undergone hair transplant surgery to cover up his "embarrassing" bald spot.
Clattenburg, 42, had the procedure at the Medical Hair Restoration Clinic in Manchester, which is part-owned by none other than Ryan Giggs.
The official, who has taken charge of both a Champions League final and a European Championship final, had thousands of hairs from the back and sides of his head grafted onto the crown.
"I was refereeing in the Premier League and I was embarrassed watching myself back on TV as my hair was receding," Clattenburg told the MHR Clinic.
"The confidence I have now, walking around with a full head of hair from what it was like, is phenomenal.
"I can style it and gel it and do things with it that I've never been able to do in the past."
Welcome to a brave new world of product and partings, Mark.
