Bournemouth players have each been given a pair of orange glasses by the club to wear before they go to bed in order to improve their sleep.
The Premier League club have introduced “SleepSpec” glasses to their squad, which help to reduce blue light emitted from mobile phones, tablets and TVs.
Bournemouth’s head of sports medicine Dr Craig Roberts says the new equipment will prove to be a “game changer” for the side and the benefits will soon be seen out on the pitch.
“Many of our players spend long hours in hotel rooms and often watch television or play computer games,” Roberts is quoted as saying by The Sun. “The consequence of this are that they then struggle to get to sleep once they go to bed, which subsequently affects their performance on the pitch.
