Robbie Williams tunes out pop for sport when driving

Robbie Williams prefers to listen to sports radio than music now.

The 42-year-old pop star doesn't enjoy tuning in to modern pop when he's driving around with his wife Ayda Field and their two kids, daughter Teddy, four, and two-year-old Charlton, and prefers to set the dial to UK sports chat station talkSPORT to keep up to date with the latest soccer news.

When asked what he likes to listen to in the car when he's with his children, he told The Sun newspaper: "Ah, talkSPORT! I have control of the radio. I'm such a guy I listen to football. But the kids now have got their own little iPad and they've got 'Peppa Pig' going on, 'Sofia the First' and Chuggington. I am such a guy I'm listening to football at the front."

It seems Robbie's no-music rule in the car is closing his kids off from the wealth of music in the charts.

The 'Party Like A Russian' singer recently revealed little Teddy thinks he's the "only" singer in the world.

He said: "Teddy, my daughter, thinks that the only person who sings in the world is me."

The part-time Take That member says having a family has completely transformed his life for the better and has helped him overcome many of his personal demons.

He said: "Having kids is an emotional atomic bomb. It's a reason to live and a reason to go to work. And this is the best job in the world, but it's a job."
