McLaren Formula 1 driver Lando Norris has agreed to shave off his hair after raising more than $10,000 for the COVID-19 response fund.
Norris is a prolific streamer of sim racing, and took part in the Twitch Stream Aid event on Saturday alongside a number of musicians and celebrities to raise money for charity.
More than $2.2 million was raised for the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organisation, which is supported by the United Nations Foundation.
Norris pledged to shave his hair if fans watching his stream donated more than $10,000 to charity, with the final total reaching over $12,000.
An anonymous donation of $700 tipped Norris over the required target.
"Does that mean I'm over?" Norris said laughing, adding: "No! We made 10k! RIP hair!"

Norris later revealed he has ordered some trimmers from Amazon that were due to arrive in four days.
"Thanks to all my viewers for raising over $12,000 by the end total for Twitch Stream Aid and the fight against COVID-19," Norris wrote on Instagram.
"I do have to cut all my hair off now though..."
McLaren team-mate Carlos Sainz Jr. replied to Norris' Instagram post saying: "Oh boy I'm ready."
Norris has been taking part in a number of different sim racing events at home as the UK remains on lockdown in a bid to combat the spread of COVID-19.
