Lewis Hamilton has shared a candid post on body image with his followers, admitting that he still struggles with how he feels about himself. 

The racing driver, 36, shared a video of himself wearing just a pair of shorts in the mirror as he revealed the issues he sometimes feels with his own body. 

He told his followers: ‘I’ve always been that skinny dude. Partly because of my job but mostly due to misguidance on diet, training, lack of certain workouts and bad sleep. 

‘Training is a struggle for me, it always has been. There are days when I just don’t have the motivation, days I hate my body, days where I feel fat or too skinny. 

‘My weight fluctuates a lot, up and down 2-3kg weekly depending on sleep, water and training. Remaining consistent is key but most important of all is eating right. This is also not easy as I’m sure you know but we have to keep trying.’

Lewis added that the endorphins help him to start his day right and help his mental health after a workout, explaining: ‘This is me after a good session this morning.

‘Remember, working out releases endorphins that kick start your day positively so if you’re anything like me and struggle with mental health, training is a huge player in helping keep you on a positive. Go have an awesome week!’

Lewis had also spoken out about the effects of coronavirus after testing positive at the end of the year, admitting he had never felt ‘so blown’ as he did after catching the virus. 

He told ESPN in December: ‘My body’s not feeling pretty good, but I look on the bright side, I made it through.

‘I didn’t think any time last week that I’d be here [in Abu Dhabi, racing], so I’m just really, really grateful for my health and to be alive.’
