Robbie Williams has admitted that he is desperate to make his mark on pop history before getting too old.

The Candy singer recently announced that he will be doing a 15 date stadium tour across Europe next summer (13), and he admits it was fatherhood that has given him motivation to succeed.

The Sun newspaper quote the 38-year-old singer as saying: "I'm nearly 40. I'm venturing into the age where I should be getting my handicap at golf down. It's legacy time. The album's called Take The Crown and I want to seal my place in pop history and deliver a tour of great magnitude while I still can.

"I'm very excited. I've been lethargic for the last couple of albums and it didn't look like I was bothered - but I am really bothered now. There are many reasons why I'm back and I'm ambitious again and I've got the energy. Take That is a big one and my baby is another one."

Olly Murs, who rose to fame on The X Factor reality TV show, will support Williams on his tour.
