He was the hip-swivelling heartthrob who set pulses racing in Grease and Saturday Night Fever, but even John Travolta can’t defy the ageing process.
The 57-year-old Hollywood veteran showcased the extent of his hair loss during an afternoon of tennis with friends in California.
Taking a break from the sweaty workout, the Golden Globe-winner sipped on an ice cold drink and displayed his ever-growing bald patch.

The Scientologist is usually relatively coy about his thinning on top, opting for a hair piece when out in public.
Just three months ago, Travolta sported a full head of hair while posing in front of a Breitling Jet during the 49th Paris Air Show in June.

However, Travolta’s latest screen role sees him take on the life of John Gotti – a balding American mobster from The Bronx in New York City.
The Look Who’s Talking star will fill Gotti’s shoes in a biopic about the crime underbelly of the Gambino family.
It follows the relationship between Gotti and his son, John Gotti Jr, who chose to break away from the mob despite growing up in the heart of it.
Art will imitate life as Travolta’s wife Kelly Preston will take on the role of Gotti’s wife Victoria.
Known as the ‘Dapper Don,’ Gotti Sr’s flamboyant personality made him one of the most famous mobsters of the 20th century and he ruled the underworld until he died from cancer in 2002 while serving a life sentence.
Rain Man director Barry Levinson will be the man behind the lens.
