Gary Lineker has said his decision to leave Twitter was because "it tends to take over".

As frequent user of Twitter, the football presenter said he wanted to go back to life without the distraction of the popular website.

"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," the Match Of The Day host told The Sun.

Lineker left Twitter on Friday night and posted a farewell tweet to his followers telling them he was deleting his account.

He tweeted: "I'm leaving Twitter for personal reasons. Thanks all."
