Back in February, Russell Crowe went to Twitter asking fans if it was a "good idea" for the actor, musician, and film producer to buy Leeds United.

Well, today, despite thousands of favourites and retweets, Crowe confirmed on Twitter that he won't be buying Leeds United, citing he wants to spend more time with his kids.

Saying:  "Economics tell the folks in my organisation we could smash this, but, I know the personal toll it takes.

"Without my actual hands on the wheel in Leeds I can't guarantee investors a return. I've loved Leeds all my life. I will always.

"I will not steal any more of my children's time - it's that simple."
