As a result of raising over $12,000 for the COVID-19 Response Fund in a charity stream, Lando Norris is set to shave his head.
The McLaren driver participated in a Twitch Stream aid event on Saturday which ended up raising just over $2million for the cause.
$12,000 of that came courtesy of Norris’s stream, which was mixed news for him. Earlier in it, he had pledged to shave his head if the donations exceeded $10k.
An anonymous $700 donation pushed the total over the edge, and the Brit quickly burst into laughter.
A huge thank you to everyone who tuned in last night and donated towards #TwitchStreamAid, and the fight against COVID-19. Over $12,000 was raised in total!
Didn't get to watch? The below clip sums it all up perfectly.
Good luck, Lando 😉 pic.twitter.com/R042IBNxK5

He later took to Instagram to thanks his fans for all the donations and confirm what’s to come…
“Thanks to all my viewers for raising over $12,000 by the end total for #twitchstreamaid and the fight against Covid-19!”
“I do have to cut all my hair off now though…”
His team-mate and buddy Carlos Sainz commented on the post saying “Oh boy I’m ready.” Us too Carlos, us too.
