Which is the best month to be born in?

New research from the University of Essex has found that children born in certain months of the year are fitter, stronger and more powerful than those born in other months.

Researchers studied 8,000 children and measured their fitness, muscle strength and power.

Published in the International Journal of Sports Medicine, the research found that children born in November were fitter and more powerful than those born at other times, in particular those with birthdays in April, May and June.

October-born children were stronger than those born in all other months except September and November.
