Australian batsman Mitchell Johnson has reportedly got his popular handlebar moustache shaved off by wife Jessica.
As part of raising money for men’s health charity Movember, Johnson had grown the moustache in late last year, but decided to keep it for the duration of Australia’s 5-0 Ashes whitewash over England.
According to stuff.co.nz, Johnson said that he really enjoyed having the mo, the dirty mo, adding that they were able to raise close to 40,000 Australian dollars.
The 32-year old has agreed to auction off the shavings in a replica Ashes urn to help reach his 50,000 Australian dollars donation target.
However, the fast bowler has assured that his clean-shaven look won’t stay for long as he promised to re-grow the mo for next month’s tour of South Africa, the report added.
